The Holy Spirit Draws Us Closer to God
Why does this person of the Holy Spirit transform?
The same question must be asked: why does Jesus Christ transform us? It is God Himself in three persons, yet one God, who transforms his creation, his cosmos, his creatures. Words can barely explain this. The doctrine of the Trinity is true, but a great mystery. But the infinite, almighty God is One who may never be completely understood using human language.
Yet, as we move closer to God, the truth blossoms within us. We understand true joy and Christ’s peace. This drawing closer to God is the work of the Holy Spirit. The person of the Holy Spirit is to be known as person, as a Thou, not as a force or vague spiritual mass of unseen ether.
