Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 12,8-12
Jesus said to his disciples: “I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God.
But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.
Everyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but the one who blasphemes against the holy Spirit will not be forgiven.
When they take you before synagogues and before rulers and authorities, do not worry about how or what your defense will be or about what you are to say.
For the holy Spirit will teach you at that moment what you should say.”
The Holy Spirit gives life
1) Recognize: This is what’s beautiful in your relationship with God: He is the only one that can make wonders and miracles, and He is the only one that can fulfill you. It is through this that you become a witness to His greatness. You become a person in love with life because God is life! When God touches your heart, you discover this love and you convert; not into a fanatic, rather, you become a lover of life. When you are able to recognize the Love in small things and in other people you will realize this.
2) The Holy Spirit: Respect the work that God does within others. The Holy Spirit gives life and he is the soft breeze that caresses your face and touches your soul. We must not forget that our life and our church are moved by the Holy Spirit. You are a gift to others; you have the presence of the Holy Spirit to encourage others.
3) Witness of hope: We are called to build-up others. It is possible to recognize the work of God in everything and everyone .You have to be a witness of life in this culture of death. We should be a witness of community in this world of individualism. You have to be the smile in this sad society. Help others because you have self worth. You can show others that they are valued in this world that makes them feel worthless. Be Positive and Stay Strong!
God-bless you in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Remember, heaven is our goal !
