During His ministry, Jesus taught about the Holy Spirit and had a relationship with Him. Furthermore, He encouraged His disciples to receive the Holy Spirit in their lives. As Christians, we are called to seek out the same relationship. The Holy Spirit gives us power, love, and self-discipline. Power can be many things backed up by the Holy Spirit, such as boldness to preach the gospel and power to overcome temptation. Love is a distinguishing mark of those who are full of the Spirit. Love given by the Holy Spirit is obvious when we have the heart to love others the way Jesus would. The self-discipline that is given by the Holy Spirit allows us to follow through on God’s will and have wisdom throughout life. In short, His work in us makes us more and more like Jesus. When He is at work in our lives, it is evident all around us. The power of the Holy Spirit changes lives.
