The Holy Spirit in the Lives of Believers

20 Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet’s own interpretation of things. 21 For prophecy never had its origin in the human will, but prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

2 Peter 1:20-21

The Bible is an amazing and complex book. Many of the writers didn’t know one another and yet the 66 books are so remarkably woven together to point to Christ. The reason it is so cohesive is because of the Holy Spirit’s influence in the lives of the authors.

That same Holy Spirit inspires us, encourages us, corrects us, teaches us, and rebukes us – and often on the same day! Moreover, He empowers us to live a godly life in Christ, as verse three earlier states.

Call on His help early; call on it often.
