The Deity of the Spirit

God is one but a triune one made up of the Father, Son, and Spirit.  Each member of the trinity is fully God yet each member has their distinctive roles.  Here is a quote from a Systematic Theology book I am reading this year as part of my devotional reading explaining why less is said about worship of the Spirit . . .

The reason why less is said in Scripture respecting the adoration and worship of the third person than of the others is that in the economy of redemption it is the office of the Spirit to awaken feelings of worship, and naturally, therefore, he appears more as the author than the object of worship. But a person who by an internal operation can awaken feelings of worship is ipso facto God.  Shedd, W. G. T, Dogmatic Theology,  p. 269–270.
