New City Catechism Question 37
How does the Holy Spirit help us?
The Holy Spirit convicts us of our sin, comforts us, guides us, gives us spiritual gifts and the desire to obey God; and he enables us to pray and to understand God’s Word.
In Institutes of the Christian Religion John Calvin lists the following titles or descriptions of the Holy Spirit found in Scripture:
1. The Spirit of Adoption
2. An earnest and seal
5. Oil and unction
8. The word of God
The Christian life is life in the Spirit. Won't you ponder how he is all of the above to you? For example, how is the Spirit a fire to you as a Christian?
