The Holy Spirit: Not a “Thing” but a Person

John Ankerberg
By R. L. Wilson: In the Introduction to her book Jesus in Me, Anne Graham Lotz says, “I’ve heard the Holy Spirit spoken of as an ‘it,’ a feeling, a dove, a flame, a ghost, an emotion, or even an ecstatic experience…. The Holy Spirit is not a thing but a person.” Not only that, we learn from Scripture that the Holy Spirit is an essential member of the Trinity—He is God.

That distinction is important because, as R.A. Torrey explains, “If the Holy Spirit is a person, and a Divine Person, and we do not know Him as such, then we are robbing a Divine Being of the worship and the faith and the love and the surrender to Himself which are His due.”
