Isaiah 11:1-10 & Luke 10:21-24
‘It’s not what you know, but who you know’ the saying goes. It is not how much I know about God, or Judeo-Christian scriptures, or even about the Church and all its complexities, that gives abundant life. It is who I know God to be –as Father-creator, as Son-redeemer and healer, and as Holy Spirit who is helper, guide and teacher (to name but a few traits of God’s glorious being) –that makes the difference. How much do I know God? How much time and energy do I spend with the three persons of the Trinity getting to know them? Holy Spirit, help me to know God the Father and God the Son, and you, the gift of Grace present.
The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord… (Isaiah 11)
