How Important is the Holy Spirit to Christianity?

holy-spiritIf Christianity doesn’t have the Holy Spirit, what does it lose?

John Stott answers in his inimitable way:

Without the Holy Spirit, Christian discipleship would be inconceivable, even impossible.

There can be no life without the life-giver,

no understanding without the Spirit of truth,

no fellowship without the unity of the Spirit,

no Christlikeness of character apart from His fruit,

and no effective witness without His power.

As a body without breath is a corpse, so the church without the Spirit is dead.”

(Taken from The Message of Acts, p. 60)
