The Bible defines a Christian as someone who is led by God’s Holy Spirit, which is the presence of God’s power working within us.
In Acts 10:38 we learn following about Christ, “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” The Holy Spirit is the power with which God was with Christ and through that power Christ performed amazing miracles.
The Holy Spirit, in the Bible, isn’t mentioned as a separate being. It’s the essence of God - how He works and uses His power to accomplish His will. In our Bible Study aid “The Power of the Holy Spirit” we read, “The Holy Spirit is the very presence of God’s power actively working in His servants. God’s Holy Spirit is the catalyst in a transformed Christian life.”
Through the Holy Spirit we can gain spiritual understanding. Acts 8:9 says clearly, “If anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His.” God’s Spirit motivates us, empowering us and leading and guiding us in specific ways.
Let’s consider a few specific ways God’s Spirit leads us.
The inspiring conclusion to this is we have been offered the same opportunity when we turn to God and receive His Spirit.
