The teaching of the God Story about the Holy Spirit is revolutionary for a Kingdom heart. It is spiritual life 101, second only to the teaching about God’s Son.
Nicodemus said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?” Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be amazed that I said to you that you must be born again. The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:4-8
It is impossible to know and follow God without embracing both His mystery and His rock solid truth. This is one of the beautiful things about the Living God. He is mysterious simply because He is limitless. At the same time He never varies in His immovable, life-launching truth. To understand His Spirit is to experience the heart of God. From the moment the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the deep in Genesis 1 until the Spirit and the bride say come at the end of the book of Revelation, the work of the Spirit is essential to experiencing the glory of God. What a privilege!
