What’s your experience of the Holy Spirit?
I’ve been thinking a little about the Holy Spirit recently. My hunch is that debates over the baptism of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit (whichever side you fall in those debates) have distracted us from a proper appreciation of the Spirit’s work in our lives. Plus in our church we’re going to be looking at life in the Spirit, especially in Galatians, later in the year and into next year.
So I’m interested to hear how people would describe their experience of the Holy Spirit. I’m not looking for theological explanations of the Holy Spirit’s work. Instead I’m interested to hear how people experience the Spirit in their daily lives. What does it mean, for example, for you to be led by the Spirit or to walk in step with the Spirit (Galatians 5)?
