Proverbs 8:22-31, Romans 5:1-5, Psalm 8:4-9, John 16:12-15



Proverbs 8:22-31, Romans 5:1-5, Psalm 8:4-9, John 16:12-15

Proverbs 8:22-31

My Beloved, wisdom is a characteristic of the Divine Trinity and this wisdom is given to those who desire it.  Through wisdom, we come to know about God and about Eternal Truths.  Knowledge Scripture tells us puffs up however wisdom keeps us humble for we see ourselves as we truly are.

Everything in the created world is fashioned and designed by the wisdom of God and therefore it is perfect. 

Romans 5:1-5

Every baptized person receives three gifts from the Holy Spirit- Faith to know and believe in God, Hope in the God that created us for a divine and eternal purpose and Love to be able to reciprocate God's love for us His creatures.  With this knowledge comes peace that the world cannot give.  This peace is also a gift that we receive from the Prince of Peace and we experience it even in the midst of trials and persecutions.

A Christian is one who imitates Christ and images Him in the world.  Like Him, when faced with rejection and persecution, we cling trustfully to God, He makes it possible for the fruits of the Holy Spirit to become visible in us.  He pours the love of God in us and we are able to love God and love our neighbor as we ought. 

Psalm 8:4-9

My Beloved in creating us God generously shares all He has with us without limit.  When we sinned He sent You into the world to redeem us and to ensure we persevere, He sent us the Holy Spirit.  The Father so loved us that He gave us everything we need to be happy here on earth and eternally happy with You in heaven.

John 16:12-15

The Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit One God - three distinct Persons each outdoing the other in loving eternally.  Each giving totally of Himself to the other.  Complete is this Perfection of relational love one with the other generating a Third - the Holy Spirit.  Not needing anything or anyone in the least yet God desired to create us, His poor unworthy creatures in order that we too may taste the heavenly delights of His glorious love.  In loving God above and over all and in loving each other, we become partakers in the Divine Life of the most Holy Trinity.  Nothing is denied us - we each receive according to our desire, our hunger and our thirst.
