Tonight we're going to continue our look at the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We are in a doctrinal study and sometimes we dig a little deep and cover some more narrow aspects of theology. And sometimes we give a kind of general overview, a little bit more simple, straight-forward sort of beginning understanding of these various doctrines. And in doing so, we endeavor to speak to those who have been around a while, and who know and understand the great themes of theology, and at the same time talk to those who are new and need a basic understanding. And tonight, as we saw in our last look at the ministry of the Spirit, we're really talking about a very basic understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit.

I think it is obvious to all of us that the Holy Spirit is the member of the Trinity who gets the least attention. We have many, many songs that are written and sung about God, about the glory of God, the character of God, the mighty work of God from creation through redemption. We have hymnals filled with songs of praise to God. We have many songs, perhaps even more, about the marvelous realities of the person of Christ and the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. In fact, there seems to be no end to the songs that are written about our Savior. We have far fewer hymns and far fewer songs that are dedicated to the person and work of the Holy Spirit. He is included here and there as a verse, or in a reference to the Trinity, but there is not just a substantial hymnology related to the Holy Spirit and that leaves us a little on the short end of giving worship to the third member of the Trinity, worship which is due to the Spirit....
