The Toronto Raptors, Canada’s team, are one victory away from being NBA champs! One of the reasons I think they are doing so well is because of an unsung hero: Coach Nick Nurse. A coach in any sport is key to a team’s success because a coach gives clear direction, clear focus, and helps the players to become the best version of themselves …
We have a coach: the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps you and I, on the team of the Church, become the best version of ourselves. The Holy Spirit has the game plan, and if we are listening to Him, then we will succeed.
Are we coachable? Are you and I willing to receive coaching from the Holy Spirit, in order to follow His game plan … ? Are we humble enough to admit that we don’t have all the answers and we want to invite God into our struggles, into our problems to help us?
Without the Holy Spirit we can do nothing; but with the Holy Spirit we can do all things.
