Christ's delight was Fear of the Lord.

Tuesday, 5/23/17

Jesus said that it will be better for us if he go, so that the holy Spirit might come to us.

My attempt at grasping the truth of that, has me recalling how in his lifetime Jesus showed himself to enemies and to indifferent people who were not moved by him.

In his speaking of the Spirit.  I recall Chapter Eleven of the Book of Isaiah that describes the Spirit as the instigator of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel. Fortitude, Knowledge and Fear of the Lord.

Isaiah wrote that of those  six ir was Fear of  the Lord that was his delight.

We must call on the Holy Spirit to help us fully appreciate what those gifts can do for us.
