Holy Spirit – the instigator

I always look at the Holy Spirit as a type of instigator, always moving, always challenging, one who doesn’t sit still. He is there to challenge us to get out of our comfort zone and do something different, something more demanding. We all love our favorite couch or chair or sofa, where we can sit and watch TV, read our newspapers or just relax and doze off for a few minutes. But when someone else takes our place, we feel irritable and uncomfortable. We feel out of place and yet we get determined to do something different, something more than the basics. That’s what the role of the Holy Spirit is like – he never stops instigating and motivating and asking for more. He doesn’t like it when we are complacent and careless about our duties and wants us to be on guard on what is required of us. He is that inner voice that says to us ‘you can do better, you can do more, you can improve on those efforts.....’ So let us listen to Him and do more than the basics. Let us not be afraid to change our attitude, our perspective of what life has in store for us in the future. Come Holy Spirit, come into our lives, into our families, come into our homes and inspire us to do a little more.
