The Holy Spirit wants to have fellowship with you (2 Corinthians 13:14). God gives us love, Jesus gives us grace, and the Spirit gives us communion.
Most of us think that the Spirit’s gift is tongues or maybe power. But His primary gift is a relationship. He wants to have an ongoing relationship with you. You are fully qualified for that relationship, in the same way, you are qualified for the love of God and grace of Jesus. He desires intimacy with all of us, not just with certain special people.Holy Spirit's gift is communion, not just conviction. Click To Tweet
His gift is not just conviction but communion. When believers think of the Holy Spirit, their minds quickly move to the fact that the Holy Spirit’s role is to convict us of sin. But when you read in the context of the Holy Spirit’s conviction, you will see that He comes to convict the world of sin and to convict us of righteousness (John 16:8).The Holy Spirit comes to convict us of righteousness, not just of sin.

His role is to convict the world of sin so that they may believe in God to bring them to Christ. He does convict us of sin as well, but He also wants to convict us of the righteousness that we have through Jesus Christ.
When was the last time you have been convicted by the Holy Spirit that you are righteous? Do you know that’s also His role? May you experience the conviction the Holy Spirit, the conviction that you are righteousness in Christ Jesus.
