Power to Love

What does the Holy Spirit bestow on us? Listen to the apostle: “The love of God has been poured out in our hearts.” He continues, “We have this treasure in earthen vessels.” Why in earthen vessels? “That the dominant power of loving may be seen as God’s.” Thus, in order for you to love God, let God dwell in you; let him prompt you to love him, kindle you, enlighten you, rouse you.

—Augustine, Sermon 128.4
