I believe the Holy Spirit is the most neglected person in the Godhead. We accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior.We accept the the adoption of our Father as sons and daughter, but we so often neglect the importance of the Holy Spirit as a person too! Is He not the one who convicts us of sin, righteousness and judgement? Is He not the one who reveals truth in the Word? Is He not our teacher? Is He not the person who prays through us in agreement with Jesus in Heaven? I love the Holy Spirit . Jesus sent Him from the Father to replace Himself here when He left to be with His Father. I am grateful for the love of God shed abroad in my heart by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said, "My sheep hear my voice and they follow me". How can we hear His voice except through the person of the Holy Spirit in us? The Holy Spirit is like the sheep dog that rounds up the sheep at the command of the Shepherd's whistle and herds them into a pen. He takes his orders from the Shepherd only.
Peter preached saying,"repent, be baptized, received the Holy Spirit.?" I believe the power of the Holy Spirit was given to testify of Jesus resurrection. He is not dead . He is at the righthand of the Father interceeding for us. The HolySpirit is the person of God sent to earth at Pentecost to bear witness that His work is finished. The Holy Spirit is taking over. The Holy Spirit in us testifies that we are alive.Jesus
Do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work at Calvary? If you do, have you received by faith the person of the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit is not just God's power. He is a person and God too. He is God's enabling grace in us to love the Lord our God with all our heart soul and strength and our neighbor as ourselves.
Let us not neglect to acknowledge Holy Spirit as an important person in the Godhead, and thank the Lord Jesus for sending Him to take His place. Through the Holy Spirit we will experience the presence of God the Father and His Son Jesus. Peter preached saying,"repent, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, be baptized, receive the Holy Spirit". The fellowship of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is available to us.The Throne room is open all the time. The blood of the lamb avails for us to enter in. Our born again spirits ignite with excitement and joy as we enter into fellowship with the God of this universe. He is the creator and sustainer of our earthly home. Come let us worship our God together: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
