“Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you,” John 16:7.
Holy Spirit is God with us, the one who is helping and empowering us to live the life that God wants us to live.
He is God living inside of those who have accepted Christ as their Savior. We can achieve anything without the power of the holy spirit in our life.
Here are some Bible verses that tell us more about who the Holy Spirit is:
