This is the final message in our series “The Holy Spirit And You.” The Holy Spirit indwells every person who gives their life to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The work of the Spirit includes equipping every believer with spiritual gifts to use in serving others in the local church.

The Holy Spirit also begins engraving the character of Jesus Christ into a believer. Paul describes these qualities as the “fruit of the Spirit” in Galatians 5:22-23. As we die to self, the Spirit begins shaping us to live out these qualities found in Christ.

As we allow the Holy Spirit to engrave us, to shape us, we become God’s ambassadors in a world that is hopeless, without true peace, devoid of authentic kindness and living only for self. Into this dark world the Holy Spirit shapes our character to reflect Christ and bring unconditional love and true peace to people living in darkness.
