One of the many risks we run as Christians are becoming an accidental heretic. It’s something we all want to avoid because we do not want to go around speaking words which do not honor the greatness of our God. One of the more troubling trends which seem’s to continue to spread is an inadvertent attack on the Trinitarian doctrine. As harmless as it may seem to some, its a huge deal because far too often we see the Holy Spirit taking as sideline role. For those of you who are new to this Christianity thing, welcome, you’ve made a life-changing decision, for those who are not well this post will be just as important to you as it is to them.
Folks, we seem to have no issue remembering God the Father and God the Son, but when it comes to the Holy Spirit we often forget about Him, and it’s a shame because the Holy Spirit is so crucial to our being as Christians. I know many of your ministers probably have let you down in this department, but if this is your first time hearing this I am sorry and am glad you came here today. The church needs to stop treating Trinitarian Theology as an idea. Yeah, we say these fancy creeds once in a while, but do we give the Spirit it’s due? I mean really. Think about it how many sermons do you recall where the Holy Spirit got His due? Folks were not talking about a characteristic of God, we are talking about GOD. Let it be known the Holy Spirt is God, The Father is God, and Jesus Christ is God.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t fault many ministers for forgetting to mention the Spirit once in a while, and there is a far more dangerous group out there those who deny the Trinity altogether. This is wrong. If you are one who follows this I am giving you a strong piece of advice right now STOP.
Now I could go on and on about this topic, but will close here. When I think about the Holy Spirit I often think about a first responder, and before I go too far I am not limiting the Holy Spirit to this reference. The Spirit is far greater than this, but in the sense that the Holy Spirit does so much for the world, and never receives the recognition He deserves. Again, I want to point out that we can not describe God with our mortal words. However, for many of us, we don’t give the Spirit the recognition He so deserves. The Holy Spirit is the driving force which makes changes within us. He drives our spiritual formation and to forget about Him is inexcusable. Peace and Blessing to you always my brothers and Sister in Christ.
