This imagery of the Spirit is quite striking. The Spirit is the wind, the storm, the hurricane God uses to triumph over His enemies. The Third Person of the Trinity loves to make the First and Second Persons of the Trinity look good.
In our Gospel lesson (Mat. 3:13-17), the Spirit hovered over the waters like He did in the beginning of creation. He loves to equip His creation and His image-bearers for victory. One way he accomplishes such a task is by taking God’s people to feast in the heavenly places. He loves to usher God’s people to eat and drink with Christ Jesus. Just as the Spirit clothed Jesus, He clothes us. He empowers us to be like the Father’s beloved Son. The Spirit’s role is to make every member of the body of Christ filled with the maturity of the Son. The Spirit calls us today to taste and drink. Let us come together.
