John 16:6-14

“I believe in the Holy Ghost. . . .” These are familiar words to those who ever attended a church where the Apostles’ Creed is recited during each service. Six words commonly heard yet seldom thought through. What, exactly, do they mean? Do we believe the Spirit is a person? But the creed calls Him a ghost. Do we believe the Spirit is present today? But Jesus has left the earth; didn’t the Spirit leave with Him? And even if the Spirit is here today, how does His presence differ from that of the Father’s or the Son’s? Is there some distinction? In the final analysis, is the Spirit really that important? Would it be all that different if He and His influence were suddenly removed from earth? It is these questions (and more) that we must answer.
