A word every day to get you on your way!
Here is the Daily Dose for Monday, May 24, 2021.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:4
Yesterday was Pentecost Sunday. Pentecost is the day that we take out to recognize the birth of the Church and the coming of the Holy Spirit. While we recognize the birth of the Church and the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, we must be careful that we don’t forget the Church and the Holy Spirit the other 364 days of the year.
Pentecost is an amazing celebration, but it is a celebration of an ever-present reality. We must remember that we are the Church every day. The Church is the called out gathering of disciples who are the hands and feet of Jesus. That means when we become believers, every day, everywhere, we are the Church. Every day, everywhere, we are the light of the world, bringing hope into the most desperate situations. And as the Church, we have the Holy Spirit.
On Pentecost, the Holy Spirit fell on believers, but we as believers have access to the power of the Holy Spirit every day. Every day we have the power to make a difference. Every day we have the power to change lives. Every day we have the power of God inside of us to bring joy, peace, and hope to a sin-sick world. Pentecost is a day that serves as a reminder that there is power available to us every day!
This week, remember that we celebrated Pentecost, but live in the power of Pentecost. Live knowing that you are part of God’s Church and that as a part of the Church you have POWER!!
