Last year, Christianity Today interviewed J.D. Greear about the Holy Spirit. When asked, “How would you characterize your relationship with the Holy Spirit?,” he replied, “I began to discover that an understanding of our relationship with the Holy Spirit helps to soothe these anxieties. Instead of saying, “Look at all that God needs me to do for him,” the Spirit reminds us to say, “Look at what God is empowering me to do.”
We are only able to live holy lives because of the Holy Spirit living in us.
