Dear friends,

In reading the New Testament, we come to understand the simple truth that the Holy Spirit brings life to God’s people. Jesus cautioned his disciples not to depend on their own insight and strength but to wait until they received power from on high. Earlier, he made them the amazing promise that they would, through the Holy Spirit, do “greater works” than Jesus himself! Before Pentecost and the endowing of the Spirit, the disciples were uncertain and uncomprehending. But after Pentecost and throughout the rest of the Book of Acts, they became bold and forceful witnesses to the gospel.

The Holy Spirit is God’s presence among us to bring the fruits of peace, love, patience, and joy. He equips us with the gifts needed for ministry and the building up of the church. And the Spirit fortifies us with the authority of God to fulfill the mission he gives us in the world.

In our church, we focus on the trinitarian God who is known in Jesus Christ. But let us not neglect God’s wonderful gift of “the shy member of the Holy Spirit” whose role is to elevate Christ and to empower, comfort, and lead us into all truth. Spirit of God, descend on us today!

In Christ’s love,

Pastor Randy
