Jesus said, “I have said these things to you while am still with you.
But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything, and remind you of all I have said to you.
(John 14:25-26, NRSV)
If you ask most Christians about God they seem to be able to identify the role of the Creator or God the Father and also identify the role of the Redeeming God, Jesus Christ. When asked to identify the three names associated with the Trinity many are likely to respond, “The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” Actually understanding the Spirit is another issue. We frequently use the words “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.” But, sometimes we are afraid to acknowledge and accept the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
