The Holy Spirit Is.

The Holy Spirit is…what pulls the Sun up from the East every morning.
The Holy Spirit is…what awakens trees out of their winter slumber and into the rebirth of Spring.
The Holy Spirit is…what makes the creek bubble with joy.
The Holy Spirit is…what creates the rainbow in a prism of clouds.

The Holy Spirit is also…what illuminates the Son for us, so that we can better see Him.
The Holy Spirit is also…what persuades us to do good.
The Holy Spirit is also…what whispers to us when we are in the desert places.
The Holy Spirit is also…our water to drink.

The Holy Spirit is…Immanuel, God moving among His people.
The Holy Spirit is…Christ on Earth.
The Holy Spirit is…what connects and moves us all as the Body.
For this Spirit is what makes this Body move and breathe: alive.
