Authored By the Spirit
Would it not be fun to spend an evening with the author Mark Twain? He was a colorful character and we would enjoy the conversations. But we have the privilege of relating to a much greater author than he was. Paul the Apostle described the ministry of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles and prophets of the New Testament. Pointing out that the Holy Spirit revealed the deep things of God, the Apostle said that even as the human spirit knows the inner life of the individual, so the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of God knows the heart of God the Father.
For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the Spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the Spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things freely given to us by God (1Corinthians 2:10-12).
In the past the Holy Spirit took what was in the heart of God and shared it with the Apostles, now he opens our eyes to understand and spiritually sense what the Apostles preached and wrote for us. In a very real sense, the Holy Spirit is the author of Scripture, and we have the privilege of having the author of Scripture live within us.
