Translating God's Word for a new generation
“I believe in the Holy Spirit, ... who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified.” The Holy Spirit is worshiped because He is God, the third person of the Holy Trinity. Today, Jesus continues to prepare His disciples for His departure. He will leave them by way of the Cross and tomb of death. Even though He rises from the dead, He will leave them again at His Ascension. Yet, He wants us to know and believe that He never really leaves us. He tells us that He will be with us always. He calls the Holy Spirit “another helper.” Though the Spirit is a person distinct from the Father and the Son, yet He is also the Spirit of Christ in the mystery of the Trinity in Unity. The Holy Spirit works through the Word of God to show Christians how to live a life of self-sacrifice in service to others.
