We Believe in the Holy Spirit
When we think of God the Father, usually a human image comes to mind such as Michelangelo’s famous painting depicting God and Adam. We often conceive of Jesus in terms of a young man. But what image comes to mind when we think of the Holy Spirit? Trinitarian doctrine calls him the “third person” of the the Godhead, but images in our mind are often cloudy or vapory. How can one conceive of the Holy Spirit as a person?
This was precisely the reason why I choose to present the Holy Spirit as a gentleman this morning. What a difference it makes to visualize the Spirit as a continual presence with us urging us and empowering us to live holy lives. I appreciate Richard using his acting talents this morning to give us a visual image of the Holy Spirit as a person who leads, instructs, guides and corrects.
My take away from this morning’s lesson is the sermon text, “So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature” (Galatians 5:16). I want to live a life “under the influence” of the Spirit so that the sinful nature continues to die away and life in the Spirit grows stronger and stronger.
