Capsule for the Day
The Holy Spirit isn't just a fairy tale character. He is real. He is the third Person of the Godhead. He is the Spirit of Truth; the Truth that is self-communicating and also self-giving. The Truth that brings forth life... unites, creates and transforms. It is the Spirit of Truth that sets us free.
He sets us free from the lies of some of our feelings. He leads us to the whole Truth, the Truth of who we truly are and who God is. The Holy Spirit sets us free from anxiety that makes us to spend today living tomorrow, and leaves us in fear when tomorrow finally dawns. He sets us free!
But He doesn't set us free to do what we want, how and when we want. He sets us free to see and do the Good which He reveals by His very nature as the Spirit of Truth. He reveals the Good of love, which is more than a feeling. For love is the virtue that marries our feelings to the Truth.
