If the trinity has you intrigued and you want to find out more about the Holy Spirit, this is a great resource to start you on your exploration! Just remember to compare everything you learn with Scripture and include more mature Christians like your parents, leader, or chaplain in your learning process.

Military chapels service both the Protestant and Roman Catholic congregations on any given Sunday morning. Did you know that both of these groups hold to the convictions of the Apostles’ Creed. Notice what it says about the trinity and specifically the Holy Spirit.

Apostles’ Creed

I believe in God,
the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ,
God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Check out this video of By Your Side by Tenth Avenue North with lyrics. Use it as a moment to reflect on everything that God offers us and the reasons you continue to reject what he offers and cling to the ways of this world.

Life Questions:

  1. Look at the Scripture section and choose one to memorize this week. Put it by your bed, fridge, locker, or somewhere you will see it multiple times a day. Tell a family member or close friend why you chose that verse and what you need to understand about Jesus Christ’s presence in your life.
  2. Spend some time meditating on who you understand the Holy Spirit to be in your life. Don’t worry about being right or wrong or having a logical opinion; just think about how you honestly see God present in your daily life. Now write, draw, sing, dance, or paint a representation of your understanding of the Holy Spirit. Performance arts are great but I would encourage you to create something tangible for you to hold on to and look back on once you have grown and learned more!
  3. Try writing “Holy Spirit” in ink on the palm of your hand and see how many times in a day you think about it and how many times someone else asks you about it. Yeah, it’s bold, but give it a try.



Rewrite Psalm 46 in a journal or notebook. You can use your own words or emphasize the parts that you think are important. You can even try drawing, rhyming, or writing some words creatively (like making the word “look” have eyes or the word fool have a jester’s hat) Just spend time meditating on all of God’s promises to be there when life gets unstable. His Holy Spirit is how God shows up for us when we call out to him for help.

Psalm 46

God Is with Us
God is our shelter and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken
and mountains fall into the ocean depths;
even if the seas roar and rage,
and the hills are shaken by the violence.
There is a river that brings joy to the city of God,
to the sacred house of the Most High.
God is in that city, and it will never be destroyed;
at early dawn he will come to its aid.
Nations are terrified, kingdoms are shaken;
God thunders, and the earth dissolves.
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.
Come and see what the LORD has done.
See what amazing things he has done on earth.
He stops wars all over the world;
he breaks bows, destroys spears,
and sets shields on fire.
“Stop fighting,” he says, “and know that I am God,
supreme among the nations,
supreme over the world.”
The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.


This is a short but hilarious clip of Seth Green yelling with excitement in The Italian Job and the crediting the Holy Spirit for his joyful outburst. Enjoy!
