function of the Holy Spirit


Function of the Holy Spirit in us.

John 14:16-17
[16]And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—
[17]the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.

It is disheartening to hear how most believers do not believe that the Holy Spirit dwells in them talk more of being functional in them. He is the most in contact with us on this earth. He can be your best buddy, gist partner and anything you literally desire Him to be.

He is the guarantee of Eternal life.

2 Corinthians 1:22
[22]who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.


At salvation, the Holy Spirit was given to us upon our reception of Christ into our hearts. The Spirit of God in us becomes the seal and guarantee of Eternal life in us and this clarifies that anyone carrying the Holy Spirit in them cannot enter hell.

He is our DNA.

John 1:12-13
[12]But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
[13]who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The Word Becomes Flesh

We believers are reborn by the Spirit of God. His Spirit in us is our assurance that we are legitimate children of God – we are begotten by God Himself.

We have the same DNA and imprint with God our Father. He made us one with Him.

Anyone who by faith receives Christ Jesus is a begotten child of God because of His Spirit in him. If you have Christ in you, you have ceased to be an ordinary being to be viewed from a human point of view, instead you are now viewed from the Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:17
[17]But the person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him.

1 Corinthians 2:10,12,16
[10]But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.
[12]And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.
“Who can know the lord’s thoughts?
    Who knows enough to teach him?”But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.

The Spirit of God knows the mind/thought of God; His inseparable Spirit in our spirit enables us to know God. As children of God, we can know things before they happen because we have the Spirit of God in us that can reveal them to us

By the Spirit of God, we are privileged to know the deep things of God. No other species of God’s creation, not even the angels have this privilege. That is why the bible says “what is man that you are mindful of him?” Those things that were mysteries to the men of the old, the Spirit of God in us has enabled us to know them.

He helps us grow in the knowledge of Christ.

By the workings of the Spirit of God, we can be all that Christ is.

Growing in the knowledge of Christ is coming to the knowledge of who we are and what we have been predestined to become in Him.

Ephesians 1:13-14
[13]And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago.
[14]The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.

According to the above verse, the Holy Spirit is a guarantee for the manifestation of all that has been promised us in Christ. He reveals Christ, who is the revelation of God in us. Without the Spirit, we cannot know Jesus the way we know Him today. He is the knowledge concerning spiritual things, He makes knowing the things of the Spirit easy. Therefore, live your daily life in the Spirit.

Everything promised through salvation is possible through the Holy Spirit and He is the assurance that we will keep living like heavenly dignitaries on earth. Before Jesus went to the cross He said in John…

He is our access.

Titus 3:6
[6]He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.

The Spirit of God has been given to you without measure, but how far you desire to go in your Christian walk and His manifestation in your life is dependent on how you engage the Holy spirit. He is the ease and advantage we have and everything that comes through Him comes in abundance.

John 14:26
[26]But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

The function of the Holy Spirit in us is unending. As you study the Word of God, you will begin to understand that the Spirit of God is in you and that He is the power at work in a believer and His possibilities in us can never be exhausted.

Do not keep the Spirit of God in you idle.

Always engage Him through prayers, study and fellowship with Him. There is so much the Holy Spirit wants to do through you and in you, but you have to allow Him.

You are unstoppable!
