Desktop computers are filled will all different pieces of information, but we can’t see them without a screen. The information on the computer might be useful and interesting, but it is locked up and invisible unless you attach a screen. The screen lights it up and reveals what is on there.
This is like the Spirit, who reveals what is on the heart of God. God has a wise plan to rescue through Jesus dying on the cross, and the Spirit takes that and reveals it. What beautiful work the Spirit does among us! The Holy Spirit unveils things that are covered up and a mystery, things that are wonderful and transforming.
The Spirit is like the screen that brings God’s plan and lights it up before our eyes. What a gift and a blessing!
