Through the Spirit, Christ is Present Everywhere

SPIRIT WITH US—The Spirit is simply

God’s self-communication in grace,

present and active everywhere,

pervading the world. This basic but

profound reality bears repeating today,

because so many do not experience

God’s nearness but think of God as

distant or even unreal. This is most

unfortunate. Through the Spirit, the risen

Christ is universally present in the world

everywhere and in every moment, as

pervasive as the air we breathe, as the

sun or the rain that comes down on us,

as the wind that blows around us, as the

new life that flows with our every breath.

—Dr. Elizabeth Johnson
