Isn’t the Spirit’s role to point away from himself and bring glory to the Father and the Son? If you’ve ever wondered about this, you’ll be pleased to hear you’re in good company!
We sing lots of songs that worship Jesus, glorify the Father, but few that worship the Spirit. There’s a sense that the Spirit is somehow less the focus of our worship? Is it right to worship the Spirit? Or are we getting sidetracked? It’s one of the oldest questions that the church has wrestled with through the ages.
I have been reading recently about how in the days of the early church, some tried to argue that the Spirit was not supposed to be worshipped. In response, one of the giants of the first few centuries of Christianity, Basil the Great, wrote an amazing work called “On the Holy Spirit” 375 AD that sounded loud and clear with the message that the Spirit is fully God.
