"Holy Spirit, Our Intercessor" - Romans 8:18-27 - (July 26, 2020 - 8th Sunday in Pentecost)
What is the life Spirit of all Christians as they struggle daily with evil and pestilence in the world, their own temptations, fear, mistrust? Do we look to ourselves? The security that is offered on commercials, in the news, to our government, local authorities to help us through? In his letter to the Romans, Paul has presented us with Christ, who creates us new as we are buried with Him and rise to new life in Him. He presents us with Christ, Our Deliverer. Then, he shows us God, Our Father, who is loving and forgives our sins daily. Today, Paul continues talking about the work of the Trinity in chapter 8. He presents us with the work of the Holy Spirit, Our Intercessor. We are here today because God’s Spirit in us points us to look only to Him who has delivered us, to Him who is our Father. Today’s theme: The Holy Spirit, Our Intercessor.
