Hebrew: Ruah Greek: Pneuma
The mystery of the Holy Spirit can be compared to the mystery of the wind blowing this way and that. John 3:8 states, "The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit." NIV
When we choose to be led by God, we see the power of the Holy Spirit at work as it produces the fruit of the Spirit within us.
"What happens when we live God's way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard-things like affection for others (love), exuberance about life (joy), serenity (peace). We develop a willingness to stick with things (patience), a sense of compassion in the heart (kindness), and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people (goodness). We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments (faithfulness), not needing to force our way in life (gentleness), able to marshal and direct our energies wisely (self-control)." Galatians 5:22-23, The Message.
As Pastor Paul Gunderson says, "May the spirit of God bless your life and may the wind of God fill your sail."
We give glory to God who mysteriously transforms our lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.
