The Role of the Holy Spirit To Believers
In this post, I’ll be discussing the role of the Holy Spirit to believers.

The bible says, “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, are the sons of God.” Romans 8:14.
Like the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit is a distinct Person of the Godhead. As a divine Person, the Holy Spirit is eternal, ever-present, Almighty, perfectly wise, perfectly just, and perfectly good.
