Trinitarian Love within us

Callie was chatting to me this morning about how it suddenly struck her that she has the Holy Spirit living inside her.  I got thinking about this in terms of how some theologians describe the Holy Spirit as the love between the Father and the Son.  So, if the Father is pure self-emptying love, and if that self-emptying love is the Son, who is the Father's radiance, and the Spirit is the love shared between Father and Son, then this means that having the Holy Spirit live inside us is having the love between the Father and the Son living within us.  This is an amazing thought.


  1. John 17:26 - "I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them."


  2. It is an amazing thought and one life time isn't enough to stop being amazed. I'm not sure eternity is long enough either!
