“Jesus went on to say, ‘If you love me, do what I have told you to do. I will ask
the Father to help you with this. He will send another Helper to be with you.
That Helper will stay with you always. He is God's Spirit, and he shows you what
is true. The people who belong to this world cannot receive him. That is because
they cannot see him. They cannot know who he is. But you know him because
he stays with you. And he will be in you. I will not let you remain alone, like
children without parents. I will come to you. Soon, the people who belong to
this world will not see me any longer. But you will see me. Because I continue to
live, you also will live.”
John 14:15-19 EASY
We are all so blessed to receive the Gift of the Holy Spirit. I am always in awe
when I think about that. Everyone around me who believes in Him has a piece
of God in them too. That’s really what makes your brother and sister so
precious. They know God because God is inside them.
What really blows my mind is how the bond of the Trinity is pure love. The
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work in unity which makes the feeling of love within
you so strong. I know this because I have felt it firsthand many times. It’s
actually quite addictive. It drives me to feel that love over and over because I
can get it nowhere else. This love conquers any fear, worry, or any other
emotions except love.
What even makes the gift of the Holy Spirit even more mind-blowing is it’s given
to a microorganism living on a planet among unknown numbers of planets and
solar systems. I am unworthy of this Gift yet it was given. I guess that’s why I try
to return my love to Him through words, thoughts, devotion, deeds, and regular
faithfulness as that’s all I have to give. Yet, this seems enough.
Maybe that is why angels surround the throne of God and praise Him as
described in Revelation 5. It’s because what else can one do when surrounded
by indescribable perfection? by Kent Brosh a Kawaiaha’o Blog Contributor
