The doctrine of the Third Person of the Trinity has been controversial throughout the Church history. We cannot ignore the subject of the Holy Spirit and it is important for us to take the time to study it and if led by the grace of God, through Christ, teach others about Him.
The question one can raise is, why should we study of the Holy Spirit. There are several reasons why we should devote the time and study the Holy Spirit and why He is important for our Christian life and ministry. One is that, as we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is the Third person of the Trinity and as He lives in our lives, the Trinity becomes personal to us. Second, we are living in the era in which the work of the Holy Spirit is more prominent and we must align ourselves with the Will of God.
Work of The Holy Spirit
The work of the Holy Spirit is clear in the Old Testament and in the life and the ministry of Jesus Christ. However, in this article, we are focusing primarily on the works of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believers. During His conversation with Nicodemus and His disciples, Jesus placed strong emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit in order for one to be born again. So our conversion and regeneration are both works of the Holy Spirit in our lives, if we have accepted Christ as our personal savior.
