This year we will (finally!) be covering the Holy Spirit of Jesus in us! In previous years, we reviewed names of Jesus, prophecies of Jesus, and words of Jesus. Now, the time has come to take a closer look at the day and age we live in - the time of the Holy Spirit on earth. Though He did not come until after Jesus left this world, the Holy Spirit is the closest God has ever been to us and ever will be until Christ comes back.
"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light." -Genesis 1:1-3
Other versions say that the Spirit of God was "moving" over the waters. How awe-inspiring and exhilarating! There's nothing, and then God's Holy Spirit moves, and suddenly everything is illuminated! And that is precisely how Jesus works in our hearts. Before we come to know Him, our souls are so lost, trapped in darkness. But when the soul of the Son of God enters your being, you become privy to the Creator and his wisdom, you see life through His perfect eyes and your view is ripped open to compassion.
Praises and thanksgiving to God for not abandoning us to the darkness, but for sending the Light of the World, Jesus, in the form of the guiding gentle Spirit so that we may know and see our loving Father once again!
