That is my thought on this Friday afternoon. I am not yet in heaven, but I feel like I am. It is the here and now – gracious, miraculous, heavenly union with God. The Lord’s words in the second half of John 14 are my sweet meditation.
Last Sunday morning, I spent the whole sermon on Jesus’ words in John 14:15, seriously considering the ramifications of this simple declaration.
This Sunday morning, we move forward, delving into the Person and work of another Paraclete. The Trinity of verse 16 is directly related with obeying, because of agape, the Lord’s commandments .
First question: What is the “official” LDS teaching on the Holy Spirit? Does it matter what LDS believe about the Spirit?
Second question: Who or what do you think is the Holy Spirit?
Third question: Where do you stand on the rift between the West and the East wings of Holy Mother Church on the Holy Spirit?
(I can’t wait till Sunday!)
