The Holy Spirit is a powerful, creative person. He “brooded” over the formless void of the earth. In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit “overshadowed” Mary and conceived Jesus. Now, the Holy Spirit comes to live inside Christians.
And how is the kingdom of God advanced? The Apostle Paul said, “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you!” Jesus said, it is the Holy Spirit in us who will convince the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.
As the living, producing, creating person of God becomes “one” with a believer, spiritual children and righteousness are born (John 17). This glorious process happens not by grueling self-examination, but by faith, love, and trust in God.
