John 16:13

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.”-John 16:13

The Holy Spirit is not a formless idea, the product of wishful thinking or new age beliefs; he is a person who guides, listens, and speaks, but since we cannot see him, we often fail to recognize his work in our lives. The Spirit listens to the Father and the Son and communicates what he hears as a conduit of Trinitarian love and guidance. The Father, Son, and Spirit are one God, they all share the same message, but it is the Spirit who communicates with us.

Jesus, you live in perfect harmony with the Father and Spirit. You always have. It is tempting to stress the importance of one member of the Godhead over the others, but you are one God. Help me to pay attention to your Holy Spirit as he enlightens me and helps me to know who you are and who I am. Amen.
