Sanctified by the Holy Spirit

November 6, 2015 6:49 am

“But I have written to you rather boldly in some respects to remind you, because of the grace given me by God to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in performing the priestly service of the Gospel of God, so that the offering up of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.” (ROM 15: 15-16)

It doesn’t matter what kind of ministry or service we do for Our Lord; it is always good to remember that in the beginning is “the grace given us by God”; at the end is “the service of the Gospel of God,” and all of this is possible only by the presence of the Holy Spirit, “sanctified by the Holy Spirit.” Without Him there is a danger that we will not bring all the beauty of God’s love to others.

‘Whoever keeps the word of Christ, the love of God is truly perfected in him.” (Gospel Acclamation)
