Talk 1: The Holy Spirit As The Love Of God
Who is the Holy Spirit? For many, He appears to be an illusive third person in the Holy Trinity. We can feel Him but cannot see Him. This is because He is God’s love in person. He is in His very person the reciprocal love of the Father and the Son, the mutual gift of love between them. Hence, the Holy Spirit expresses the innermost nature of God as self-communicating love. This love in God is not kept within the Holy Trinity, but is poured out into the world through the Holy Spirit.
Talk 2: The Holy Spirit Enables Us To Experience The Love Of God Personally
In this session, we focus on what the Holy Spirit does. The Holy Spirit is the key to encountering the Risen Christ, who brings us to the Father. Only He can reveal to us the depth of God’s love, since He is the love of God in person. Consciousness of the presence of the Holy Spirit is also consciousness of the love of God and the love shared between the Father and the Son. Without knowing the Holy Spirit in person, we cannot know the heart and mind of the Father and the Son.
Talk 3: The Holy Spirit Empowers Us To Love In Christ
We all love at least something or someone. But what and how should we love so that we can be truly happy? The truth is that we do not know what and how to love as we ought, because of our fallen nature. We confuse self-love with the true meaning of love. Authentic love sets a person free when his love is directed at God and his fellowmen. But we cannot love selflessly unless someone loves us first. The source and capacity for love is founded not only on the fact, but also on the experience, of God’s love. This love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
