1 Peter 1:10-12 (ESV)
Concerning this salvation, the prophets who prophesied about the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired carefully,  inquiring what person or time the Spirit of Christ in them was indicating when he predicted the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glories.  It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
“In the things that have now been announced to you through those who preached the good news to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven.” Whenever the gospel is preached, it is the work of the Holy Spirit. Wherever the good news of Jesus Christ and his death and resurrection is proclaimed it is the work of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in the word. And though he might be other places or cause other things to happen, we know that he is where the Good News is being preached. He binds himself to the gospel. And the gospel is the as Paul says “Christ Crucified.” It is on the cross that our sins were forgiven, It is in his resurrection that we are given life. The Holy Spirit? He sees to it that this news is not forgotten for all the banter on MSNBC, all the terrible news we deal with day in and day out. The Holy Spirit sees to it that this good news remains news and good news at that even some 2,000 years after the event.
However, though we know that the Holy Spirit has bound himself to the gospel, and is found wherever the gospel is proclaimed, it is often quite doubtful that he is anywhere where he becomes the center of attention. I’m serious about that. People invoking the Holy Spirit and clamoring to see the signs like a wicked generation of fools sputtering gibberish have a spirit, but it is doubtful that it is the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit doesn’t do that. He doesn’t draw attention to himself. He focuses peoples attention on Jesus Christ and him crucified. Sure there are occasions, such as this one, where some attention needs to be given to the person and work of the Holy Spirit. But the Holy Spirit didn’t die for anyone nor did he rise from the dead. And that is the gospel, the good news, that Jesus Christ rose from the dead after dying for your sins. Now we too, having been caused to be born again, are given new life in him through the work of the Holy Spirit.
