If you have ever witnessed an accident, there are several things which must take place before you can leave. The police must be contacted, vehicles must be moved off to the side and witnesses need to give their account of what happened. The authorities are trying to create a 360 degree picture of the scene. When all of the accounts are written down, an accurate perspective is usually derived.
We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him, Acts 5:32.
When it comes to testifying about that which is unseen, accumulating information is much more difficult. Perhaps a prayer spoken up to heaven is answered in a relatively quick time. Or a financial need is met in a supernatural manner. Some may even see a miracle unfold which defies logic. If you have encountered any of these scenarios, maybe you have been a witness of the Holy Spirit.
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 1 Corinthians 6:19.
The apostle Paul puts a different spin on this topic. Relying on Jesus’ words to his disciples in John 16, Paul suggests this counselor can actually enter your body. This Holy Ghost transformed his brethren from scaredy cats to bold evangelists. This display of faith likely inspired a generation of believers. Although the presence of the Holy Spirit may be rare in these days and times, don’t be surprised if you become a witness to the Holy Spirit.
