“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.” (Genesis 1:1-2)
Reflection: The Spirit of God brought life and light out of chaos and darkness. The Holy Spirit is “the Lord and Giver of Life,” and this is true both on a natural and supernatural level. To worship the Holy Spirit, then, demands that we stand against all that destroys life.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, breathe on us and renew within us the fullness of life and the strength to defend it. Amen!
