    I’m always excited to read sound doctrine! This really blessed me this Monday morning. Indeed the Holy Spirit is a person, who we should commune with daily.

      So glad you were blessed by my post. I believe that too many of our church leaders have gone the way of appeasement and do not preach and teach this sound doctrine, so I share what I learn from the Preacher at my church. The Holy Spirit is indeed a person who lives inside us once we repent and accept Jesus as Saviour. It is important to remember that when we sin, it grieves Him. Thanks for your kind words. God Bless!
