We know the Father, we worship the Son,
but how much do we really know about the Holy Spirit?

As Jesus ascended into heaven, he left us with a gift, the greatest gift we could receive on this side of eternity. The gift being the very Spirit of God. We may be aware of his presence in the trinity, but often, we can treat the Holy Spirit as a supporting character, when it is solely through Him that we may come to know Jesus.

So who is the Holy Spirit, and why is it important for us to have intimate relationship with him?

Jesus tells us he is our guide, comforter, and teacher; whatever we receive through him, comes directly from the Father. In this collection we will be diving into the fullness of who the Holy Spirit is, and how we can grow in deepness and relationship with him.

Stewarding Fire

In the Old Testament, the priests had to keep the altar burning but they didn’t have to start the fire. In the same way, we can’t start the fire of God but we can keep it burning.

Don't Take My Oil

Oil has many uses throughout scripture. It was used practically for medicine, healing, and fuel, and it was used symbolically to anoint people to walk in their calling. Oil also serves as a symbol of the Holy Spirit. In scripture, we see David anointed with oil — with one anointing, he went from shepherd to king. From that day on, the Spirit of the Lord stayed with him. One moment with the Holy Spirit changed the trajectory of David’s life; one moment with the Holy Spirit changes everything for us, too. It’s the power of the Holy Spirit that transforms our hearts and equips us to walk in our purpose.

Icons of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. He is God. The Holy Spirit is a person. At the same time throughout the Bible the Holy Spirit has icons or symbols to represent him.


We find that the Holy Spirit came down in the form of a dove upon Jesus at His baptism.

"And the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” Luke 3:22


On the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came down and in-dwelt believers in a special way, we find the wind playing a role in what took place. The mighty wind symbolized the mighty work of God’s spirit.

"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting." Acts 2:1-2


The Holy Spirit is likened to fire. Fire purifies as does the work of the Spirit, doing the purifying and refining work of the Lord.

"The Lord will wash away the filth of the women of Zion; he will cleanse the bloodstains from Jerusalem by a spirit of judgment and a spirit of fire." Isaiah 4:4 NIV


The kings of Israel were anointed with oil which symbolized the Spirit of the Lord coming upon them. The anointing with oil symbolized the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Oil had a number of functions in the ancient world. Similarly, the Holy Spirit functions in a number of important ways in the lives of believers.

"So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD came on David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah." 1 Samuel 16:13 TNIV
