“May I see you in my office?” These words raise the hair on the back of my neck to this day. Have you ever had your boss say to you, “I have an open door policy,” when they really had a closed-door policy? Oh, and how did you feel once you’re behind close doors? Did fear feed you while you were waiting for your boss to tell you why you’re called to the office?

God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, three in one, the trinity is given to each believer when we accept Jesus as our savior. God, Jesus and Holy Spirit were together in the beginning when the world’s created by God. Genesis 1:26, Let Us make man in our image, after our likeness. The Holy Spirit is the comforter and he edified God. In Romans 8, nothing can separate us from the love of God.
Beloved, we can grieve the Holy Spirit through our sinning, 1 John 1:9 says if we confess our sins, Jesus is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins. Then we can walk in harmony, refreshed, renewed with God. We have access to God through the Holy Spirit.
I had so much fear in my first job but in my second job there was no fear, I trusted God to give in both situations and the Holy Spirit was in both offices. Beloved the Holy Spirit is with you and you have access to God because….
