Daily email from the Vicar Number 66
Good morning, it is Pentecost Sunday, one of the key dates/festivals in the Church’s year.
It is also the 11th and final day of Thy Kingdom Come, and using the material that they suggest to help us in praying for others, especially our 5. Today’s overall theme is Pentecost – the Spirit in us.
Our Bible reading is Acts Chapter 2 verses 1-8
, a longer version of which will be the Reading in our service later, so feel free to keep going!
On the Day of Pentecost, God sent His Holy Spirit, as Helper and Comforter, and enabled the disciples to proclaim – in different languages – the wonders of
God so that people from all nations could understand.
This shows us that the Spirit of God is present for every situation. When we share our faith with our friends, we can ask the Spirit to help us ‘translate’ the good news of
God’s love so that they can understand how it affects them in their situation.
At Pentecost we remember that the Holy Spirit is living in us. Let’s not get too used to that amazing fact! What a privilege we have.
The Spirit awakens us to the love God has for us and helps us to love others.
Holy Spirit, thank You that You are living in me, showing me God’s love and helping me share that love with others.
The next time you have an opportunity to share your faith and talk about the love of Jesus, consciously remind yourself that the Holy Spirit lives within you.
