Words of Encouragement:
As we celebrate the Day of Pentecost, we know that the Father has answered Jesus’s request:
“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17 ESV)
Yes, as you/we have heard and received God’s Word which is true and faithful, the Holy Spirit not only is with us, but is literally in you/us. Now we no longer are ever alone! Receive these words; trust in them; and rest in the assurance that no matter what is happening in the world, the Lord will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance the promises your dear Lord has given you. Not a worldly “peace”, but His “Peace”.
“These things I have spoken to you while I am still with you. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” (John 14:25-27 ESV)
Thank you, Jesus, for making it possible for us hear Your Word and thank you Holy Spirit for coming into our hearts so that we can receive all that the Father desires for us to have. Forgive us, Lord, for not recognizing Your amazing love and blessings You offer us. Thanks for Your mercy and the assurance that You will continue to teach us and never forsake us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Lord into your hands we commit our bodies, mind and spirits. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
COVID-19 will not keep us from spreading the Word.
