Ezra 3 and the Trinity

Ezra 3:1–13 (ESV)

1 When the seventh month came, and the children of Israel were in the towns, the people gathered as one man to Jerusalem.

What does Ezra 3 reveal about what God the Holy Spirit does in me and through me?

God the Holy Spirit works new life 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.
