They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me;
and those who love me will be loved by my Father,
and I will love them and reveal myself to them.
Romans 8, Verse 26
Because we are human and consequently imperfect, we need help on our spiritual journey. In our humanity, we are weak. Jesus knew this and sent us the Spirit to help us and guide us. Paul states that because of our weakness and imperfection “we do not know how to pray as we ought.”
And so the Spirit intercedes on our behalf, and not just in any ordinary fashion. Spirit intercedes “with sighs too deep for words”. Have you ever felt so full of emotion that you couldn’t speak? Were you ever so emotional that all you could manage were deep sighs? That is how Spirit intercedes on our behalf to God. Amen!
