“The Holy Spirit will teach you everything and remind you of all I told you.”
John 14 : 21 – 26
|May 19, 2014 Bible Reading and Gospel|
The Gospel is all about what God offers us and not so much what we can offer other than a receptive heart, mind and soul. It is God who makes the important moves and we are the ones who respond to His offers of grace. This is work on our part but it is work empowered by the Holy Spirit and under the grace and guidance of God.
The world will always try to hold us back. The pleasures of life will become temptations that stunt our spiritual growth. Our own imperfect desires will have the same effect. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to have a fuller reign in our lives so that He can always challenge us to lift our expectations and to strive to grow more in holiness and likeness of Christ.
