Can You Trust the Holy Spirit to Save You?

I was talking with a friend who had been a Christian for many years. The topic of his baptism came up.

“Why did you want to be baptized?” I asked him.

“Because I wanted to receive the power of the Holy Spirit so that I could overcome all my sins.”

“Did it work?”

He laughed. “No.”

His intentions were good, but his understanding was flawed. (No one understands perfectly, and we are saved by God’s mercy despite our misunderstandings.)

Can You Hear the Holy Spirit?

When the church in Antioch gathered for worship, the Holy Spirit spoke to them: “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Does the Holy Spirit speak to us today? Can we hear what he says to us?

People who are led by the Holy Spirit are children of God (Romans 8:14). We should expect the Holy Spirit to lead us, and we want to know how he does it.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God at work – creating, speaking, transforming us, living within us, working in us. Although the Holy Spirit can do this work without our knowledge, it is helpful for us to know more.
