Today, the scripture tells us to follow the way of the spirit, to be open to the teachings and to the guidance of the advocate who is ready to help us, says the Archbishop Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He noted that we ought to always do good and avoid evil. That there is one language, when ever spoken, everybody hears it – the language of Love. He admishes us to radiate love, and that if we do not speak the language of love, we are not following the way of the spirit. But if we speak the language of love, then we are following those who are helping in the re-purification of the children of God. With the language of love, the entire human race would be purified. May we always speak the language of love.
