groaning of the Holy Spirit

Groanings, Part 3 – The Holy Spirit – Romans 8:26-27

I express my heart and mind in words that are so often inadequate to express my thoughts. But I do not have to worry about the inadequacy of my words. The Holy Spirit is bringing my petitions to the Father in a very adequate fashion. Thanks to the Holy Spirit, the sufficiency of my prayer is not dependent on my own limited expression.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, one in essence with the Father and the Son, but distinct in the role he plays in our salvation. The Holy Spirit brings conviction of sin to the world, enables us to live as believers, and equips us for service in the Kingdom.

The Fruit of the Spirit – Galatians 5:22-23

While many books on character development have been written, the most effective way to develop into people of real character is to walk with the Holy Spirit. When we do, the fruit of the Spirit will be obvious in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
