Freedom by the power of The Holy Spirit
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17
I started a series on the ministry of the Holy Spirit; an absolutely unplanned turn of events that has been flowing out of what God has been teaching me lately through His Word about the Holy Spirit.
I’m pretty certain that most Christians if asked to choose between the physical presence of Jesus Christ on a daily basis and the indwelling presence of The Holy Spirit will choose the physical presence of Jesus. Yet, before sacrificing his life on the cross, Jesus said these profound words to his disciples:
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. John 14:16
“When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me. John 15:26

ZOE, a Greek word for life used multiple times in the bible means eternal life or ‘the God-kind of life.’ The rich abundant divine nature of God. His fullness of love, joy, power and ability.
When you get born again, this abundant life and nature of God
As children of God, we are called to walk in holiness.
However, holiness is frequently viewed as a huge unattainable feat. As an attribute that describes God and Jesus, but not us. After all, ‘we are only humans.’ But regardless of how we may feel, the believers in the New Testament were often referred to as holy, which means that holiness is also for us today.
