What is the power of the Holy Spirit?

Here's the answer:

The Holy Spirit, one of the persons of the trinity, is very powerful. He can do amazing things.

God is three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are all one God—which can be hard for people to understand since humans aren’t made that way. Each person of the trinity works differently. The Holy Spirit is the One who came to live with Christians after Jesus died, rose again, and went back to heaven.

The Holy Spirit came to Jesus’ followers first, on a day called Pentecost (you can read more about that in Acts 2). He came to them in a powerful way. There was a great wind in the place where Jesus’ followers were gathered, and small flames rested on each person who was there. The Holy Spirit then did a miracle and helped those believers in Jesus speak in different languages so they could go out and tell people about the good news of Jesus. Later, the power of the Holy Spirit would help many of Jesus’ followers do miracles like heal people and bring them back from the dead. The Holy Spirit showed His power so many people would believe in Jesus.

Today, the Holy Spirit shows us His power by giving us spiritual gifts, which are talents we have that can help other Christians. He also guides us and shows us how to live in the way God wants. Everyone who believes in Jesus has the power of the Holy Spirit in them. “The Spirit of the God who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you…” (Romans 8:11a). What a wonderful gift!

Bible Truth

"I [Jesus] will ask the Father. And he will give you another friend to help you and to be with you forever. That friend is the Spirit of truth. The world can’t accept him. That’s because the world does not see him or know him. But you know him. He lives with you, and he will be in you" (John 14:16–17).

"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you. Then you will tell people about me…from one end of the earth to the other" (Acts 1:8).
