Message for May 31, 2020 from Pastor Shirley

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven of a rushing mighty wind that filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them as tongues of fire and sat upon each other. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.  Acts 2:1-4
    The church was birthed with power on the day of Pentecost.  The Holy Spirit that came on that first Pentecost is the same Holy Spirit that is active in the church and world today.  This was a day God was equipping His Church with the power of His Spirit so that He will be glorified among the nations.  
      The Holy Spirit is given to us not only so that we may know and experience God’s power and love in our lives but also to work in and through us to change both ourselves and the world around us. 
      My heart has been heavy this past week with so much upheaval in our nation.  How we so desperately need a fresh wind of Holy Spirit fire to invade our nation. 
      I remember the lines of a couple of hymns-“Breath on me, breath of God. Fill me with life anew, that I may live as You did live, and do what You would do”–”Spirit of the living God, fall fresh on me, Spirit of the living God fall afresh on me. Melt me, mold me, fill me ,and use me. Spirit of the livingGod, fall afresh on me.”
      I ask that the Holy Spirit fall on us today-refill us again. That there would be no room for self and that the glory of God would fill our land.  We are the presence of Jesus in the world today with the Holy Spirit in us.
