How The Holy Spirit Works With The Father And The Son

1 Peter 1:2 (NLT)
2God the Father chose you long ago, and the Spirit has made you holy. As a result, you have obeyed Jesus Christ and are cleansed by his blood. May you have more and more of God's special favor and wonderful peace.
The Holy Spirit has the distinct honour of being one of the three members of the Trinity - the other two members being God the Father and Jesus Christ, His Son. This particular verse shows how the Holy Spirit works with the Father and the Son in the life of a believer:
  1. The Father chooses us and makes us His children.
  2. Jesus redeems us, having died for us while we were still sinners.
  3. The Holy Spirit draws us to the Lord and continues to work in our lives to make us pleasing to God.
As you can see, all three members of the Trinity work in concert to bring us into a relationship with God. For that reason, we see that the Holy Spirit is indeed an integral part of what has been called "the Godhead."
