Most things living inside you are harmful. Like a tapeworm. Or insecurity. But there is one thing that desperately wants to live inside of you that is the complete opposite of harmful. In fact, it’s the one thing that can guide you to living a fulfilling life in an empty world.
Most of us know something about God, and we know a little more about Jesus. But what—or who—is the Holy Spirit? Is it a ghost? Is it a force? Is it even an “it”? The Holy Spirit is a mysterious part of our faith. In this message, we’ll remove some of the mystery and in doing so, we’ll discover the path to a fulfilling life in an empty world.
We tend to think God was involved in the beginning, Jesus came later, and the Holy Spirit followed. But that isn’t the case. From the beginning, the Holy Spirit brought order to chaos and light to the darkness. That was true in creation, and that can be true in your life too.
After the resurrection, the disciples were completely different people. They boldly spread the message of the gospel, even in the face of death. As Christians, we have the exact same Spirit of God in our lives, so why don’t our lives look more like Peter or John’s? We’ll explore this in Part 3 of Holy Ghost Stories.
