Sunday Words of Encouragement May 19, 2013

Today is Pentecost Sunday. It is a day 50 days after Easter, 10 days after the ascension of Jesus, which celebrates the Holy Spirit falling on the Apostles and believers. Acts 2:1-13. It marks the beginning of the Christian church. Pentecost fulfills Jesus' promise to send the "Advocate", "Helper", "Counselor", "Spirit of Truth" that was given in John 16-5-15. Pentecost launches the large-scale spreading of the Gospel, the message of salvation.

Just as the mighty rushing wind and flames of fire came upon the Apostles, we need a fresh fire each day to remind us of the importance of the Holy Spirit alive in us and working to spread the message of salvation and to help others through us.

This is a song I found that is fitting for today.
Send the Fire!

Verses for Today
John 16:7-11 (New American Standard Bible) {Jesus speaking to the Apostles:}
But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. 8 And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment; 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.

I am thankful for the Holy Spirit's presence in my life. Lord help me to be more mindful and to yield to your Spirit --your Will, instead of my own-- on a daily basis.
