The Holy Ghost is so called, not because He is holier than the other Persons of the Godhead, but because one of His special functions is to sanctify – that is, to cultivate holiness in man.
We cannot have the Father and the Son without the Spirit. Neither can we have the grace of Christ and the love of God without the communion of the Spirit.
The Spirit is the abiding representative of the Godhead in the heart of the believer. He is the omnipresent teacher, comforter and sanctifier. When He reveals Himself the truth is all aglow, the hearts of Christians are warmed and the consciences of sinners are awakened. When He is grieved away or His light is quenched, formalism and fear, unbelief and worldliness prevail.
If we would have the grace that is in Christ and the love of God shed abroad in our hearts, we must secure the communion or fellowship of the Holy Spirit. We must live in the Spirit of God. That means several things.
