THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL TEACH YOU 

(Scripture Reflection Luke 12:12)
 

  "For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you must say.”

Across the vast ocean, the captain steers the ship safely to harbour with the help of a mariner’s compass. The pilot too manoeuvres the aircraft with various instruments to its intended destination.
 

In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminds us that the Holy Spirit is our guide, helper and teacher (Focus). In Acts 1:8, Jesus promises his apostles that they will be filled with power when the Holy Spirit descends upon them.

How can we be filled with the Holy Spirit? Like St Teresa of Jesus, we should always be in close communion with God. We need to be connected to the grace that his Spirit offers. What does the Spirit offer? ‘Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control’ (Gal 5:22). Through these gifts of the Spirit, we allow God’s glory to shine in us. Each one of us is a temple of the Holy Spirit which means that God himself lives in us.
 

How do we manifest God in our lives? When we raise our voices in thanksgiving for all that he has done or when in a difficult situation we pray in faith and hold on to him. When we forgive others or in humility ask to be forgiven. When we declare publicly that we belong to Jesus and try to please him in all that we do.
 

FruitLet me connect with the Holy Spirit and be filled with his gifts today.
