Jesus ⚜️🙏⚜️

⚜️🙏⚜️

It is fifty days since the resurrection and ten days since they saw Jesus ascend into the sky. They had spent some of this time back in Galilee, where they saw Jesus, and they spent some choosing a successor to replace Judas. Now they were gathered praying for the Advocate that Jesus had promised. The coming of the Holy Spirit in such a fashion must have surprised them, as would the ability to speak in languages that they, themselves, didn’t understand. Those in Jerusalem to celebrate Pentecost, the harvest festival, were surprised when they heard them praising God in their languages and not the Aramaic or Hebrew that they would have expected. So many were convinced by Peter’s preaching that they were baptised, baptised at the beginning of the Christian church. Many probably don’t remember our “Pentecost” when we received the Holy Spirit at our baptisms. But the time comes when we become aware of the Spirit of God living within us. We most likely could not speak in foreign languages praising God, but hopefully, it made a difference in our lives. You have no idea how often I call upon the Holy Spirit to guide me. When I am facing a difficult decision; when I need to know the right words to say; when the going gets hard, and I need to keep on going; these are but a few of the situations when I ask the Holy Spirit to strengthen me and inform me so that I do what is best for all concerned. The Holy Spirit is there for us all, just like the apostles. We may not be speaking in tongues, but we will receive the gifts we need. AMEN 🙏⚜️🙏

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
