This is strange, for in the Bible the Spirit is always thought of in connection with .light, help, leadership, comfort. How can such a spirit confuse us? The truth is, it is not the Holy Spirit that causes the confusion, but people's ideas about the Spirit. Let us under. stand to begin with that in vir- tually all cases, the expressions Spirit, Holy Spirit, Spirit of God and Spirit of Christ all mean the same thing. Let us under. stand also that the Spirit of God is not like a sort of religious gas of mysterious properties. Also it is not a name of some kind of holy influence, a sort of aura that God gives off, or the kind of influence that all good people have, though they may not realize it. God within What then is the Holy Spirit? One of the best and simplest definitions is this: The Holy Spirit is God at work in the hearts of men. The Bible seldom if ever says what the Spirit is, but it says a good deal in the New Testament about what the Spirit does. We could almost say that the Holy Spirit is that which makes men good, loving, and so on; but the true Spirit is never a "that which" but a "one who • . ." The Spirit is as much God as our Lord Jesus is and he is never a "what", but a "Person". The Church says, "I believe in the Holy Spirit," but in saying this (following the Bible) the church is not proclaiming a sec- ond G~d, much less a third one. We believe there is only one God. We believe that the Creator-God is the God, and is also (and no less) the God who rules in his- tory and in the hearts of men. Wherever God works in the minds and hearts of men, there is the evidence that the Spirit has been at work. If a person who is confused about the Holy Spirit will please remember that he is by no means like a ghost, but is God himself visiting us and in- spiring every good thought, will and work we have or do, we can't go far wrong. Every time we are confused about this, we can get rid of much confusion by saying, instead of Holy Spirit, just God. Spirit of Christ When the church therefore says, I (we) believe in the Holy Spirit, we are meaning much the same as if we said, I believe that God can and does communicate with men, living in their hearts and active in their lives. The church from earliest times has called the Spirit the Spirit of Christ. That is to say, whatever we think about the Spirit must be in harmony with what we 'know of the mind and intentions of our Master. God in the heart and Christ in the heart and the Holy Spirit in the heart, -- these are all the same. How God works When we say God's Spirit "works" or "acts" or "lives" in a human heart, what exactly do we mean? Can't we speak more definitely about this? Yes, we can if we follow what the Bible suggests and says. Consider only a few of the services God-in-the. heart ~enders to believers. The Spirit makes men realize their sins. When a person reaches the point of beginning to see himself as God sees him, that is a work of the Spirit, an effect of the God who lives within the man. What we can be sure of is that while today not everyone who is • filled with the Spirit can speak in "tongues," the Spirit does in our time do for God's people what he did then -- stir them with courage and faith.

Pray one for another--- (James 5:16) If there is someone we wish to see made whole and perfect, in need of prosperity, success or happiness? Is there some- one we wish to see exercise wisdom and good judgment in conducting his affairs? What ever need another person may have, we pray for him We pray knowing that God is pres- ent and works unceasingly in arid through the one for whom we pray.

PHONE 725-7021 ....THE Charles Town, West Virginia When Millie goes to bed she stops by the stairway window to say good night to her fa- vorite star. It twinkles in the frosty evening sky, and to me it seems remote and cold. But to Millie, the star is a warm and glowing friend. It's just a matter of viewpoint. A grown- up sees through the eyes of experience. The child gazes through the eyes of innocence. And as we all know, it isn't easy to exchange our experience for innocence again. Yet, this is exactly what many of us need to do. Many of us need a new approach, a new look at the old things, the old truths. We need to open our eyes, and let ourselves see; to open our ears, and let ourselves hear. There is no better place to discover this new approach than in your church. In church next Sunday you will find a new point of view. Let yourseff see, let yourself hear. You will be surprised at the results. Copyright 1966 lGis~r Ad~,rfzin~ ~'vi~, [~., Stro~urg, ~. THE CHURCH FOR ALt... ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of charac- ter and good citizenship. It is a store- house of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regu. lady and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children's sake. ~3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church reguo larly and read your Bible daily. Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday . Thursday Friday " !
