The Holy Spirit is God! He is God at work in our lives. Everything God does is done through His Spirit. Paul therefore encourages us: "Let us keep in step with the Spirit.... Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God.... Do not put out the Spirit’s fire" (Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 4:30; 1 Thessalonians 5:19). As a Christian, you are to be attentive to what the Holy Spirit says. When he speaks, God is speaking.
