Why does the church not preach the Holy Spirit? He was present during the creation moment, he is the author of Scripture, and he is the Helper Jesus left behind. Though Scripture warns not to grieve or quench the Spirit, he is most often ignored, misunderstood, and even feared. The creeds of the church say the Spirit is to be "worshipped and glorified," and yet he is hardly mentioned from the pulpit.When the Holy Spirit comes to live in believers, the process of sanctification begins. Sanctification is what God wants for his people. It is through the work of the Spirit living in our hearts and minds that the church is to be sanctified. In this book, you will read about the Helper that Jesus left behind. You will learn about the Spirit and his role in believers' lives, and some of your beliefs may be challenged. With time and practice, this mysterious being who was first introduced in Genesis will become your faithful companion.
