Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2nd Corinthians 3:17 NIV
Spirits were high! The university teams traveled down to their region´s cheerleading camp. They had training sessions and activities for several days. But the highlight was the competition. Working together they used clever choreography, good dance and all their gymnastic skills. The team was nervous but very excited. When their turn came, they gave it all they had. The boys tossed the girls to unbelievable heights and caught them again. They danced like never before and because of their team spirit and enthusiasm, they managed to come home with a trophy.
Now the Lord is called the Spirit. Unlike the spirit of a team of cheerleaders, this Spirit is not just a high emotion. The Spirit of the Lord is a living entity. He Is God! The Holy Spirit is the unseen Mystery which moves with all the power and intelligence of the Creator and Sustainer of all that exists! Where the Spirit is there is freedom! This is freedom from all that weighs us down and keeps us from experiencing God and being with Him! How high are our spirits right now? Is our excitement rising to unspeakable heights as we approach the Spirit of the Lord today?
Lift our sights above all that we normally see and hold as important. Let our hearts soar in this opportunity and the rush of being able to seek Your Presence, we pray!
