For me the notion that my Creator not only invites me to talk directly to Him but is also directing me in how to best come to Him, is more than I can comprehend. It causes me to react much like Isaiah and John when they were allowed a peek into the throne room (Isaiah 6:5 and Revelation 4 & 5).
Fourth, the Spirit builds the Body of Christ. In 1 Corinthians 12:11 – 13, Paul tells us, through the Holy Spirit, that it is the Spirit that distributes the gifts in the body as He wills. The Spirit works in each of us, Romans 12:6, gifting us for the purpose of building one another up in the faith, Ephesians 4:14 – 16. This gifting is one of the foundations for the unity that is supposed to be in the Church.
Fifth, in sharing our faith with others it is the Spirit that gives us the Words to say, Luke 12:11 – 12, and is using those words to effect the outcome in those with whom we are speaking, John 16:8. Even in our dealing with one another in disagreements or conflicts we are dependent on the Holy Spirit to help us sort those out, Paul reinforces this in 2 Timothy 2:24 - 25.
Lastly, in the area of obedience, Philippians 1:6; 2:13, we read that our obedience is the work of God. It is not specifically stated here that this is through the Holy Spirit. However, with all of the other passages that deal with His work in our life, it is not inappropriate to see the Spirit here.
This should take the striving out of discipleship. Psalm 46:10 tells us we are to cease that ineffective action. Hebrews 3 & 4 expands that by telling us we are to enter into God’s rest.
What awesome grace we have been given in Christ.
