The Fine Touch of the Spirit

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye…may abound to every good work.

—2 Corinthians 9:8


The Holy Spirit never differs from Himself, and wherever He touches a human mind His sure marks are always present so plainly that there can be no mistaking them.

Anyone familiar with the work of the French artist Millet will notice a similarity in everything he painted, as if the very breathing personality of the man had somehow gotten into the paint and onto the canvas.

So the Holy Spirit teaches the same thing to everyone; however different the subjects may be from each other, the fine touch of the Spirit’s hand may be detected on each one. NCA103

O fire of God, begin in me;

Burn out the dross of self and sin,

Burn off my fetters, set me free,

And make my heart a heaven within.

Baptize with fire this soul of mine;

Endue me with Thy Spirit’s might

And make me by Thy power divine

A burning and a shining light. HCL246
