Robert Millet: How the Constant Companionship of the Spirit Works All In

    • Christianity

After nearly 40 years of teaching religion, Robert Millet still had some questions regarding the Holy Ghost. For example, how does our doctrine regarding the Holy Ghost differentiate The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from other religions? Or what does the right to constant companionship of the Spirit really look like? It was this curiosity that led him to begin researching and eventually writing his latest book, “The Holy Spirit." On today’s episode, he shares the unique insights he found along the way. 

"Something as fundamental as God and Christ and the Holy Ghost really just cannot remain a mystery. 'This is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent' (John 17:3). If it's life eternal to know God, heaven help us if we don't even have the means of coming to know God because God is in some ways pushed off the stage, because Jesus takes center stage."

Show Notes:

2:15- "Like fish who discover water last"

9:20- The Holy Ghost or the Light of Christ

11:24- Avenues of the Spirit

16:29- My own voice or the voice of the Spirit?

23:27- Still learning, more than 40 years later

29:37- Inextricably linked to every facet of the gospel

33:36- How is His influence felt everywhere?

36:11- Baptism of fire

38:08- The differentiator 

39:47- Why three separate and distinct Beings matters

45:32- Inability to feel the Spirit amidst depression

46:16- How understanding the Spirit can change our lives

48:51- What does it mean to be "all in" the gospel of Jesus Christ?
