What is your experience with the Holy Spirit?

For years, I lived my life as if the Holy Spirit didn't exist. I came by that posture honestly, having been raised in a church that may have been faith-filled in other ways, but was agnostic about the Holy Spirit.

I suppose that anything we couldn't explain (which, when it comes to God, is just about everything), we just ignored.

Later in life, when I started paying attention to how he works, everything changed. Now, if something seems odd or unexplainable, I'm OK with that. I figure, he's God, he doesn't need to check with me before doing something. Actually, if he were as predictable as a lot of Christians want to make him, I don't know if I'd want to follow him as much.

Nonbelievers can rest easy when they debunk our theology, but they can't debunk the works of the Holy Spirit that so many of us have experienced. Try explaining the healings, the people raised from the dead, and the power in confronting evil. The Holy Spirit's power leaves other faiths – relgious systems that rely on mere words –
in the dust.

So, last month, we challenged our World Racers to write a blog post about the Holy Spirit.

Here are some of my favorites:

The Holy Spirit is a little different to each of us. Who is the Holy Spirit to you? Feel free to leave a comment to share.
