The Holy Spirit ..... Our Teacher The Holy Spirit teaches us to call our God " Abba Father " Holy Spirit cares about us so much that He prompts us and tells us that we belong to God and indwells in us teaching us about our attitudes and helping us check the ones that are not appropriate. Romans 8:9 You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. The Holy Spirit's role as a teacher is to teach us to be more like Jesus and to have the will of God . The Holy Spirit teaches us to live differently from the world and gives us the desire to live for God . By co- operating with the Holy Spirit we avoid sinning , and produce fruit---- A Christ - like character Galatians 5:16 So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature. Galatians 5:22-25 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. 25Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. By reading the Word of God the Holy Spirit helps and teaches us to grow as Christians and not stay as baby Christians , drinking milk but as mature Christans wanting the meat of the gospel . The Holy Spirit teaches us also to stay on track by conviction and as we listen and heed His voice. As I acknowledge the Holy Spirit in my life I can know that He is always there , comforting me and giving me the strength for my day to day living.
