Helping people Find, Follow and Know Jesus
Greetings Church family, as I write this the sun is out and I am thankful for Gods amazing creation of the sun to warm us. Pentecost (Acts 2) is coming up in our church calendar when we remember the empowering of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples. This also warms my heart. This week we celebrate Ascension. The story is found in the first chapter of Acts. Jesus speaking to his disciples “v8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” v9 after he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
What does it mean for me to celebrate Ascension week?
The gift of the Holy Spirit inspires me in my faith, it affirms me in my faith, it encourages me in my faith and most of all it proves for me Jesus is Lord of everything. When my Lord Jesus appeared to the disciples following his death, empowering them to continue with his work on earth it is the same message for me and you as believers of Jesus. I pray this week you may be filled with the Holy Spirit and that this empowering will help you find peace and joy in abundance daily.
Blessings, Mercy, love and peace be yours in abundance
