Holy Spirit (5)      Characteristics of Personality (1)     
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. (Matthew 28:19 - 20)

The Holy Spirit is included in the Trinity, which is made up of 3 distinct persons:

• The Father
• The Son
• The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit serves as a teacher, counselor, comforter, strengthener, inspiration, revealer of the Scriptures, convincer of sin, caller of ministers, and intercessor in prayer. In addition, the Holy Spirit has certain characteristics of personality that appears throughout the Scriptures.
