Holy Spirit's Work 68

Water in Creation

CreationThe Holy Spirit work enlivens all creation and engineers the rejuvenation of plant and animal life. Without the Spirit's work, all creation would stop cold and dead in an instant. Behind the "mother nature" smoke screen propagated by our secular society, moves the real Holy Spirit worker. Mother nature never created a good harvest or a fall of rain. As the hymn says, "All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all."

All Around Us

SurferThe Holy Spirit comes in a special way at baptism, as on many other occasions in our lives to bless us. The sacramental water of baptism hides beneath its ripples the flowing blessing of God through the Spirit's work. This is an amazing and incomprehensible truth.✞

Refreshing Water

Amazon RiverThere is a story of a boat adrift off the South American coast. The crew were dying of thirst. Another ship appeared and hailed it asking if there was anything they needed. The crew shouted back "Water, water!" The sailors on the second ship simply pointed over the side at the sea. All around them was the fresh water of the mighty Amazon River which poured out many miles into the salt water ocean. Nourishing fresh water was all around but they were still dying of thirst. They did not know of the thirst quenching stream. In the same way, the Holy Spirit work is all around us invisibly creating and renewing both us and our environment without us scarcely realizing it.
