Week Ending Sunday, August 20, 2017
We are entering our third week of Creed by Adam Hamilton. The third major part of the Creed is "I believe in the Holy Spirit...". Some people have a tough time with this one. I can "see" how that might be; after all, it is also called the 'Holy Ghost'. Whoa! Now more people have a problem with it! But let us back up a minute. When was the last time you saw God? I don't mean the seeing of a flower coming up through the crack in the sidewalk; I mean when was the last time you saw God, in the "flesh" so to speak? I can honestly say God has never appeared to me in the "flesh" but if He did to you, I would sure like to hear your story. In any case, perhaps you have had a nagging problem at home, or at school, or at work, or at church; out of the blue came an answer to your prayers that makes perfect sense and maybe it came to you as a voice or a vision. Was that really an answer to your prayers? Seems like it; so I ask, where did the voice or the vision come from? Was it from your own brain, late in coming because of all the computing power it took to figure it out? Or was it God sent? If you believe in the power of prayer as a messenger service from God then who does the delivery part of it? Does it ever enter your thought that maybe the delivery was God and he use the Holy Spirit as his DHL straight to the doorstep of your brain? (In this case DHL stands for Deity Hot Line). Whether you think this is a good analogy or not does not matter; it does matter that you know and believe the Holy Spirit is here and is a direct part of the God in whom we all believe.
