Just as Christ was sent by the Father with a clear mission and goal to accomplish on behalf of humanity, so is the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God is famously known as the Helper according to (John 14:26). He’s sent to empower us to live a life pleasing to God by making much of what Jesus has accomplished on behalf of us on the cross.
In that regard, it’s quite evident that His presence in our lives extremely underlines the significance of relying upon Him for empowerment, along with our inability to live the kind of life that God wants us to live. Think about that for a while, if God in all His understanding, knowledge, and wisdom sends someone for the sole purpose of helping us, we have to take very seriously.
The truth is that God knows that we can’t make that walk within our own human power and will. As a result, He sends us someone who is as powerful as He is to fill that huge inability gap we have within ourselves because of our sinful nature. Sadly, the Holy Spirit is the most misunderstood and ignored person out of the trinity, but He still years for us despite that. On top of that, He plays a critical role in the life of the believer. The Christian life is based on what He’s doing within our lives. The truth is that without Him there’s absolutely nothing that we can do out of our human effort that would ever satisfy the standard of the Lord. It doesn’t matter whether it’s done out of our most sincere effort.
The Holy Spirit is the One who reveals Christ to us. He is the One who pointed us to our Lord and Savior by convicting us of our sins (John 16:8). Nobody can confess Christ is Lord without the leading of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:3). He’s the One who leads us to all truth of scripture (John 16:13). He is also the One who helps remember us scriptures so that we can apply them properly whenever we face a situation that demands our responses. He does His works through the word of God. He’s the One responsible for shaping our lives, our characters, and our whole being to the likeness of Christ after being saved.
In short, upon examining the purpose of the Holy Spirit, it’s quite obvious that we have no choice but to depend on Him. We have to create an environment into our lives that would let the Holy Spirit carry out the very task He’s been entrusted with by God through our total submission to Him. The ideal way of living a Spirit-filled life is through the means of having faith in God.
