Ezra 2 and the Trinity

Ezra 2:1–70 (ESV)

1 Now these were the people of the province who came up out of the captivity of those exiles whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried captive to Babylonia. They returned to Jerusalem and Judah, each to his own town.

What does Ezra 2 reveal about what God the Holy Spirit does in me and through me?

God the Holy Spirit works in me so that I will believe the gospel when I hear it preached and know that God really loves and cares for me. He also helps me to rejoice in my salvation and to respond to God’s rescue by devoting my life to God. He helps me to obey God’s commandments and he makes me willing to use my gifts and resources for generous works of service in the kingdom of God.
