Pastor's Thoughts (May 29th)
“If you love me, keep my commands. And I will ask the Father and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever-the Spirit of truth.” John 14:15-17
Last week was Pentecost Sunday. The day we celebrate the Holy Spirit being given to the disciples with evidence of tongues of fire.
I have thought a lot this week about how the Holy Spirit speaks to us today. Do I hear him speak to me through others? It is in a gentle nudging that a feel him speak to me? Do I hear a still small voice in my heart speaking? Has he spoken to me through his creation? Have I been still enough to hear him in all these ways?
He has spoken to me through others. I heard him in the voice of a friend just a couple of hours ago. She called to encourage me in my work I do for the Lord. I felt him speak to me in creation as I watched the birds eat from a bird feeder in my yard. The Lord said I will take care of you and your loved ones as I do the birds. He spoke to my heart this morning of his love for me through a devotion I read of a pastor who would be preaching his last sermon saying I will be with you in all you do.
I must admit I had to reflect that all of this was realized when I sat still and thought about the verse shared from John. The Spirit of Truth, the Holy Spirit will teach us all we need to know, comfort us, and encourage us.
