When we receive God's Spirit, we cannot escape the responsibility of using it, being a light to the world in the correct way of living. Hi Spirit is His power.
The Bible speaks of the Spirit as the power or mind of God, the power of love and of a sound mind. It emanates from Him and thus can be said to be poured out
Spirit is an invisible force, the effects of which are clear by its manifestations. Spirit can be discerned by thinking through and evaluating its effects.
The Father and the Son are two separate personalities, with the Father having pre-eminence. The Bible contains no evidence of a third person in the God family.
Just as our human spirit can be grieved, God is grieved by willful sinful behavior—sullying, suppressing, or stifling the Spirit that identifies us as His.
God's Spirit is the essence of His mind rather than a third person. With this Spirit, God opens our minds, dwells in us, and transfers His nature to us.
Being 'in Christ' does not refer to location, but instead our 'concern with' or 'involvement with' Him—and He with us.

Though influenced by Satan and the world, sin is still a personal choice. Christ's sacrifice and God's Spirit provide our only defense against its pulls.
Mike Ford, drawing an analogy from a family heirloom quilt pattern, affirms that God Almighty has detailed blueprints for all His marvelous works. False scientists have willfully kept the knowledge of God out of their equations, but they sheepishly must admit that earth is unique from all other heavenly bodies in the solar …
Richard Ritenbaugh suggests that one must be a member of a language community to know the contexts defining the meaning of a word. The Greek word logos has been negatively loaded with unbiblical meanings from Gnosticism, theology, and philosophy. Its basic meaning is "word" or "saying," yet it is really more …
Martin Collins laments that when the words God and science are mentioned together, the two terms are assumed to be mutually exclusive or contradictory.
