To be open to the Holy Spirit, is to be open to spiritual adventures. Mary consented to the word of God, and the Spirit that overshadowed her caused the Word to be conceived. In a dream, Joseph would take on a new role (Mt. 1:18-25), strengthened by the Spirit.
How disposed are we to the movement of the Spirit in our lives? We, like Mary and Joseph, are invited to go on paths that will cause us to grow in faith and love. This means that we are to ‘get up from the mat of words’ and take the practical steps into real adventure.
Sweet Holy Spirit, Sweet Heavenly Dove, come and fill us with Your presence. Guide us into paths that will help us to bear fruits befitting the fact that we are a Kingdom people. Amen.
