The Reformed tradition is marked by its confessions, which echo the earliest creeds of the church. These affirmations are wholly Trinitarian. However, in practice, the person and work of God the Holy Spirit are often conflated with concepts like “Providence” or circumscribed by Scripture. This results in the Spirit being reduced
to an impersonal, vague “force” that acts on our conscience or illuminates Scripture. Nothing could be further from the divine reality of God the Holy Spirit with, for, and in us, from first creation through final new creation. The only way to be truly reformed and renewed in conformity to Jesus is to walk empowered by the Spirit, as Jesus did.
