Today's Gospel: John 3:31-36
In today’s Gospel, we see the ability to receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the third person in the Trinity; the Holy Spirit bring the wisdom and discernment we need...every second, every minute, every hour! How does one gain the Holy Spirit? We must surrender to the authority of God. The authority of God is a weighty topic because our culture does not always honor God and His value for life.
To surrender to God says that we desire eternal life. We cannot imagine life without God and we pursue Him daily here on Earth so that we will one day walk with Him in heaven. “Thy kingdom come...on earth as it is in heaven” -- we value our final eternal destination while also participating in ministries here on Earth to bring life to others.

Based on today’s reading, how is your prayer life? Are you going through the motions or are you seeking the heart of God?
Dear God, we thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit. May we receive the wisdom and discernment that grants us true peace and can only come from Your Holy Spirit. Amen.
