In our first reading, St. Paul spoke about the Spirit of God. We must prayer over what Paul’s words meant when he said, “The Spirit scrutinizes everything, even the depths of God. And, “Among men , who knows what pertains to the man except the Spirit that is within.”
I connect that with verse four of Chapter One of John’s Gospel where John wrote, “His life is the light of the human race.”
I see the Life and the Spirit as the same thing. They are God’s intelligent thinking. Our light that comes from the Life is our human thought.
Those verses make me happy in that God shares the power of thinking with us. We don’t own that power. It leaves us when we sleep or die.
