The Holy Spirit

As Catholics/Christians, our relationship with God through His Son Jesus Christ, is and should be the key element in our lives and the core of our existence. He is our Master, our Savior, our Lord. Clearly He died in order that we may live. However, to effectively sustain that relationship it is vital that we allow the Holy Spirit entrance into our day to day existence.

In John 15:26, Jesus, during the Last Supper, assured His disciples that “When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, He will testify on My behalf.” In the following chapter, John 16:13, Jesus went on to say “When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own but will speak whatever He hears, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.”

As evidenced in these two verses, the Holy Spirit is the revealer of truth. Neither He or the Son operate independent from each other or apart from our Heavenly Father. Saint Paul stated clearly in 1 Corinthians 12:3 ” Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says ‘Let Jesus be cursed!’ and no one can say ‘Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit.”

When we yield ourselves to The Lord, and pray to the Father in Jesus’ name, it is the Holy Spirit who responds and will disclose what our Savior wants us to know.
