Communion of the Holy Spirit
What exactly is the communion of the Holy Spirit?
"The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, be with you all" (2 Corinthians 13:14). We as Christians come to know the fullness of the Godhead through the love, the grace and the communion which proceed from the triune God.
- It is the love of God the Father that purposes all.
- It is the grace of God the Son that provides all.
- It is the communion of God the Spirit that performs all.
Love, grace and communion are all equally essential. What would love be without grace? It would have no expression. What would grace be without communion? It would be unattainable.
"The prime work of the Holy Spirit is to transmit the resurrected Lord to us. He does not convey the Christ as recorded in the Gospels; He transmits the resurrected Christ. When people met the Lord while He was on earth they could only say how tall was His stature, how wise He was, and how old He looked. Some could say at one point in the Lord's earthly life that he was only twelve years old or that they had seen His brothers in the flesh. But now in the Holy Spirit we are no longer restricted by time and space, and what we touch is also the Christ who is beyond time and space."
