"Thank Christ Who Sent the Holy Spirit the Comforter"

The Holy Spirit calls us to faith. He gave us the Scripture. He is the "Christianizer". Luther's addition to the 3rd article. He calls back the defectors. He gives strength to resist temptation and adversity. Insincere committment grieves the Holy Spirit. Surrender. Calloused hearts. Sin against the Holy Spirit. He calls us to holiness and love (the desire for salvation for all). Joy in holiness. Decay of universities. Communism. Concentration camps. We don't have to see what's coming - the Holy Spirit will guide and keep us
