I see the Holy Spirit's ministries as twelvefold:

1. Creation (Genesis 1:2)

2. Revelation and inspiration of Scripture (2 Samuel 23:2-3; John 14:26; John 16:13-14; Acts 4:25-26; 2 Peter 1:21)

3. Conviction of sin (John 16:8-9)

4. Regeneration of believers (John 3:5-7; Titus 3:5)

5. Baptizing of believers (1 Corinthians 12:13)

6. Sealing of believers (2 Corinthians 1:22; Ephesians 1:13; Ephesians 4:30)

7. Indwelling of believers (John 7:38-39; John 14:17; Romans 8:9-11; Jude 19)

8. Filling of believers (Ephesians 5:18)

9. Interceding for believers (Romans 8:26)

10. Guiding of believers (John 14:16)

11. Producing spiritual fruits (Galatians 5:22-23)

12. Distributing spiritual fruits (1 Corinthians 12:11)

Revelation and inspiration of Scripture (2 Samuel 23:2-3; John 14:26; John 16:13-14; Acts 4:25-26; 2 Peter 1:21) Yes, Mr. Maas had an excellent answer here. I would say TEACHING is a ministry of the Holy Spirit (John 16:12-15).

FILLING of believers (Ephesians 5:18). Amen! I would also add here, that being filled or controlled by the Spirit means a Christlike character (Galatians 5:22-23).

Interceding for believers (Romans 8:26) I agree with Mr. Maas’ mention of the PRAYING Ministry of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26; I would also add here, Ephesians 6:18).

Guiding of believers (John 14:16) To this reference of Mr. Maas, I would add for GUIDING (Romans 8:14).

ASSURING is also a ministry of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:16).
