Where the Spirit of the Lord is... there is glory for ChristOh, there is so much more I want to tell you, but you cant bear it now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. He will bring me glory by revealing to you whatever he receives from me. (John 16:12-14 NLT)
We hear the quiet breathing of the Holy Spirit on every page of Holy Scripture, but when we listen to what hes whispering, there is only one name on his lips Jesus.
If we pay attention to his way of working, we, too, will have only one name on our lips and one thing to say: Worthy is the Lamb. In doing this well be joining a vast host of men and women down through the ages who tore from their heads whatever crowns they had gained in this life and threw them at the feet of the Lord Jesus.
When weve done all we are led by the Spirit of God to do, well discover that Christ has been glorified. Should it happen that people applaud us, we without fanfare or pomposity, will direct their eyes to the Lord Christ himself
On many, many occasions, when he had raised the orchestras performance of Beethoven to heights they didnt think they could attain, the artists would rise to their feet and applaud the master, until embarrassed with the length and fervor of the tribute, he had to beg them to cease. You must see, gentlemen, hed say, it isnt me; its Beethoven.
The Spirit would ceaselessly remind us, It isnt you; its the Lord Christ! There is no other name, no other heart, no other face there is only One!
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, people are glorifying Jesus Christ.
Now, the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, he gives freedom. And all of us have had that veil removed so that we can be mirrors that brightly reflect the glory of the Lord. And as the Spirit of the Lord works within us, we become more and more like him and reflect his glory even more. (2 Corinthians 3:17-18 NLT)
