I just wanted to elaborate on the beautiful scripture we read this morning. Philippians 3:1-11
Paul talks about how there is no human effort that can bring us to God, but that it is a gift given to us because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. And that although Paul, when he was Saul, walked a near blameless life as far as the written law, Paul now counts it as nothing because of what Christ has done - the infinite value in His love for us. And then the clincher: “For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” -Philippians 3:9.
And this is where the Holy Spirit... the miracle of the Holy Spirit within each one of us comes to life. Faith being an intangible, untouchable, mystical element is not for us to hold onto or rationalize - the Holy Spirit acts as a bridge for our souls to connect with the mystical... and venture “into the unknown!” :) yes, I even sang it this morning.
The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ presence multiplied infinitely because of His death on the cross - given to each one of us. Nourish that Spirit. His Spirit in us. The Holy Spirit is what connects us to God and allows God to live within each one of us. An incredible gift... limitless in every meaning of the word.
Blessings to you today!
