Today was Pentecost Sunday..
You know... that first fruits day, when the first fruits of the church is celebrated. Jesus had to leave so that the Holy Spirit to come... and that was the start of the early church.
Pretty awesome when you think of it that way eh?
So I have all this in my brain when I read the catch word of the FMFParty and i think... one day the church shall rise up. Rise up with the Lord when he returns.
BUT ... and this is the but... in the meantime we are to BE the church. An active, vibrant, God-serving, God-fearing church that RELIES upon the Holy Spirit to spread the Good News that we know.
What say we RISE UP together eh?
Rise and stop being afraid.
Rise up and stop wondering what we should do next.
Rise up and start trusting the counsellor that Jesus himself sent for us.
What say you?
