Have you ever noticed that a store when you see an assistant that they often have a name badge on? Have you ever noticed that often on that name badge is also their position? They not only tell you who they are, they tell you what they do. God has done something similar and for today especially with His Holy Spirit.
Jesus tells us the work of the Holy Spirit in John chapter 15 verse 26
“When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father—he will testify about me. (John 15:26)
God the Holy Spirit has the work of testifying about Jesus. See Jesus won salvation. He suffered and died and paid for the sins of the whole world including yours. The Holy Spirit comes and points people to Jesus.
Without the Holy Spirit it’s impossible for a person to believe in Jesus. And so he comes through his word and sacraments and points people to the cross and the empty tomb. He doesn’t want to draw attention to himself, he wants to point everyone to Jesus. That also includes you.
Jesus didn’t just suffer and die for you. The Holy Spirit has come so that you can believe that Jesus is your Savior from sin and you can be full of the Holy Spirit and the peace that only he can give. Amen.
