8/1/16 Mystery Revealed Through The Holy Spirit

“God has revealed the mystery to us.  He gave us Jesus, who taught us who God is and how He wants us to live in relationship with Himself.  Then, after Jesus died to take away our sins, we received the Holy Spirit, who now resides in our hearts and reveals more of God’s mystery to each of us gradually, as we are ready to understand it.  The Holy Spirit is a part of God, and so all that God knows the Holy Spirit also knows.  Just like it is our spirit that gives us our personality and is the center of our being.  We cannot know the things of God unless His Holy Spirit dwells within us and tells us.  It’s not the spirit of the world that we have received, because that is the spirit of evil.  The Spirit that lives within us is from God, given to us so that we might know the things that God gives us as a free gift of love.
