By their fruits they will be known
Of all the aspects of God, I think the Holy Spirit is one of the hardest to get our minds around. Think about it, God the Father and God the Son have skin on. We can picture a parental figure, we can envision a child, we can identify with a person who has walked the earth, dealt with enemies, and lived within community.
But the Holy Spirit is more like gravity. It's there, but we're not totally sure how it actually works. We may give the Holy Spirit credit or ask for our hearts to be filled with the Spirit, but how do we really see it?
In Scripture, the Holy Spirit is likened to the wind. We can feel it, we know when it is there, but we can't see it, we don't know where it comes from, and we don't know where it is going. It's this uncontainable, uncatchable force, but it's one that we can use to fill our sails to take us across oceans. It's a force that we can use to move massive windmills and create electricity for millions. It's a force that moves mountains and gently caresses our faces.
The next few weeks, we're going to explore the fruits of the Holy Spirit to help us connect a little more. We're going to fill our sails and harness the energy. We're going to move mountains and lovingly touch the souls of those who need it. I will challenge you to do something with each one to help make it real in your own life.
Join me, and let me know how it's going. (#spiritchallenge on FB or Instagram)
