The Holy Spirit is mentioned repeatedly in the bible. Jesus said he must go away so that the Companion, aka the Holy Spirit, could come to us. Jesus said we need this Spirit of Truth to guide us into all truth. Paul said you can’t say Jesus is Lord except by the Holy Spirit. So what is the Spirit? Why Spirit?
God created us as a gift with the invitation for us to come around God’s fire and share in God’s story. The way we stay near God’s fire and share in God’s story–what we were made for–is ultimately by the Holy Spirit inside us.
