Catechism Class: Lord's Day 20B, Q53, The Work of the Holy Spirit

Q.53, What do you believe concerning the Holy Spirit? A. First, he is, together with the Father and the Son, true and eternal God. Second, he is also given to me, to make me by true faith share in Christ and all his benefits, to comfort me, and to remain with me forever.

So, we have three easy statements about the WORK of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is GIVEN, as a GIFT to us, secondly, the Holy Spirit REGENERATES US, and thirdly, the Holy Spirit, ETERNALLY ABIDES with us. In this lesson, we’ll look at the first two of those, awakening, and regeneration, and then, in our next lesson, we’ll look at how the Holy Spirit is out downpayment of heaven, the ‘Ernest of our inheritance,’ how, we may obey the command to not grieve the Holy Spirit, and lastly we shall explore what the Scripture means by ‘the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.’
