Monthly Message

Dear Friends,

Before Jesus left to return to heaven, He gave parting instructions.  Those instructions were what we, today call –

The Great Commission- Matthew 28:16-20

16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Jesus never gives someone a job that he doesn't’t empower them to do.  Before he returned to heaven, He told His followers that He was sending the Holy Spirit, Advocate and Comforter, to give them the necessary tools to do the job – the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

Paul tells us in his Epistles (letters) to seek and ask for the gifts.  Without those gifts of the Holy Spirit, we are ineffective to accomplish the task Jesus has set before us.  We see a dwindling and ineffective “Church” in this current world.  Why?  Because we believers have not asked to be filled with the Holy Spirit and try to accomplish the task at hand with our own energy.  This is why we are tired and depleted and all our work bears no fruit.

Ask for the filling of the Holy Spirit and seek and ask for His gifts.  Last Sunday was Pentecost Sunday.  EVERY Sunday should be Pentecost Sunday!!!
