Skyler was a great fisherman even though he was still young. He had a good teacher. Skyler had been fishing with his father since the time he could walk. Books, the internet and videos were also tools that Skyler used to develop his fishing technique, but there was more. Skyler had a gift for fishing. He understood the fish. It was something that could not be gleaned from a book or even from watching a demonstration.
As disciples of Jesus we have many tools that can help us in our Biblical knowledge and theological understanding. The life of faith, though, is more than reading, listening and small group discussion. The Holy Spirit is present in our lives. It is the Spirit’s presence in our lives that enables us to grow in our faith, deepen our commitment, expand our love and sharpen our insight.
The Spirit is God’s gift to us. The Spirit is God’s presence in our lives and it is through the Spirit that we experience God’s power. There’s more to the Spirit’s work, though. The Lord wants us to experience the fullness of an abundant life that comes through a relationship with God. The Spirit moves within us so that we experience such a life.
How does the Spirit move in you?
