The Spirit Draws Us Into God's Love

'It is the Spirit who unites us to Christ. Like the oil flowing down the body of the high priest, he imparts the blessings of Christ the Head to his Body, the church. He takes what is Christ's and makes it our's (John 16:14) so that in the beloved Son we might be the beloved children of God. How great and lovely, then, is the work of the Spirit! He unites us to the Son so that the Father's love for the Son also encompasses us; he draws us to share the Father's own enjoyment of the Son; and he causes us to share the Son's delight in the Father. What could be more delicious than to keep in step with a Spirit whose purpose is that?'
