Richard Rohr – The Spirit

Thought this daily devotional from Richard Rohr was great.  So I figured I’d post it.

 

A Christian is someone who’s animated by the spirit of Christ, a person in whom the spirit of Christ can work.  That doesn’t always mean that you consciously know what you are doing.

As it states in Matthew 25, “When have we seen you hungry?  When have we seen you thirsty?”  We may have no idea that we do what we do for Christ.  But Christ said: “Because you did it, you did it for me.”

It never depends upon whether we say the right words, but whether we live the right reality.

Adapted from Simplicity, p. 157

Starter Prayer:
     Lord, send out your spirit
and renew the face of the earth.
