Understanding the Holy Spirit: Fellowship with the Holy Spirit

2 Corinthians 13:14 Amp
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”
Koinonia, that’s the Greek word used in this passage of scripture that we translate to fellowship. This word has several meanings including, partnership, participation, communicate, and communion. The one that’s most interesting is social intercourse which basically means communication or dealings between individuals or groups.
To have fellowship with the Holy Spirit is to partner with him, it is to communicate with him and to be actively involved in a relationship with him.
For that to happen we must recognize him as a person and learn to interact with him as a person. He is that close friend who is always with us everywhere we go.
It is through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ that we have been bought and redeemed, all this because of the love of God the father, that we are able to have fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit is willing and available to teach us the deep things of God, to guide us into all truth and give us counsel and wisdom but that must develop from a deep intimate relationship that we form with him. When we learn to commune with him, to talk to him like we would talk to a friend, then we will begin to recognize his voice as he speaks back to us and guides us.
As we develop this relationship then we will learn to rely on him and not on our own understanding, he becomes that close friend that we share the deep and intimate things about our life, the concerns that we have and the things that are troubling us. He becomes that close friend that we share our joys and troubles with and as we go along then we realize how deep and meaningful our relationship with God becomes.
He is right there with you as a believer, God promised that he would abide with us forever. Start today and be deliberate about building a strong bond and relationship with him.
Do you consider it weird having a relationship with someone whom you cannot see and neither can you hear them with your natural ears? How often do you have conversations with the Holy Spirit? What do you need to do to develop a deeper relationship and fellowship with the Holy Spirit?
