Dear Holy Spirit

Author requests article critique
Dear Holy Spirit,
I figured if you are a person like scripture says and everyone tells me, then I ought to be able to talk to you in a letter. I don’t know what to call you, Mr. Spirit, Mr. Holy, or Mr. Holy Spirit. If you don’t mind, I will address you simple as Holy. That name seems to fit.
Hi Holy. As you already know, you have become a big part of my life lately. Two years ago, I didn’t even know who you were. Now I think about you a lot. You consume so much of my time and energy. I read articles, I listen to sermons, I talk with friends, I study the bible, and I cry out to out to you with all my heart. I want so bad to understand you and to know you. Since you live in me now, it only makes sense for me to pursue you with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my strength. You have become my dearest friend. You are truly the greatest gift of my life. I thank God for you every day and I realize Jesus left this earth, so you could come into my heart.
There is so much confusion about you today. It causes so much division among so many believers. Whole movements preach about who you are. Some say you are a person, others say a spirit, some say you are a force like a mystic ghost, or a magic genie that we can demand things on request, and some ignore you completely.
Holy, it is so hard for me to sort it all out. Sometimes I study so hard I get a headache. I get so confused and feel lost at times. People say this and that about you, but I want to know what you say. I am so late in my life coming to God, our Father. I don’t want to waste time chasing rabbit trails or things that don’t really matter. I just want the truth about you. In addition, I want to know what you mean in my life and show me how I am suppose to live. My dear Holy, please help me.
My dear Johnny,
First, thank you for the letter. Many of my people won’t even to talk to me much less write to me.
My friend, we have been waiting on you since the day you were born. We have hoped from the beginning of creation that you would choose us over the world. It has been a long wait for you Johnny. However, as the saying goes “Better late than never”.
I am sorry there is so much confusion about who and what I am. It’s been going on for over two thousand years. You would think after that much time people would get this right. This is the main reason you must trust me, not the false teachings of today.
Okay, let’s start from the beginning. As you have read in scripture, I am part of the Holy Trinity. We are as one, but three. I know that sounds weird but hang with me on this. I am God. I am His Spirit but make no mistake about it; I am a person just as you are. I feel joy, I feel love, I feel pain, but most of all I have felt you since you accepted me into your life. I am the indwelling presence of Christ that guides your life if you will let me. It is a lot more than just having me live in you. My whole purpose is to guide you and empower you to live the life God intended from the beginning.
If you remember, Adam had the Spirit of me living in him from the start. However, because of sin my Spirit died in Adam. This created a problem in humanity. Therefore, God had a solution, the forgiveness of sin and the death of his Son so I could be restored to mankind.
Johnny, it is really that simply. I am the result of the resurrection of Jesus Christ so that you may have true life again. I know believers have twisted and misinterpreted so much of what I am about.
It is true I come upon you at salvation. It is true through your whole life I will continually fill you. I am a deposit that guarantees your place in heaven, and I do seal you with the promise that you belong to God, Jesus, and Me. However, remember those are just parts of the nature of who I am, but realize, I don’t come to you in bits and pieces.
Please, don’t ever make the mistake of labeling me as just a seal, or a deposit, or a filling, or a mystic force, or a baptism, or a genie. I am a person. I came to you once and forever and I will never leave you. As our relationship grows, you will get to know me better. My purpose in God’s plan was to restore Himself back to you through the death of His son, Jesus Christ.
Put your time and energy in that and live a life of thankfulness of what you already have. Let me take care of the empowering and your guidance. I promise I will never steer you wrong. But you must make the choice to let me be the power that guides your life.
I hope this letter from me has helped you have a better understanding of our relationship. Remember, I am your comforter, your healer, your inner voice, your guidance, but most of all I am your best friend.
Over time as you walk closer to me, I will help reveal more of God’s plan for you. Be patience and trust, especially me. Also, be thankful for what God has already given you and stop worrying about something more to come. I will take care of showing you what you already have.
Your friend for eternity, Holy.
