Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit as Counselor
HolySpiritHave you ever played the quiet game?  The object of this game is to try and sit with one or more people and not say anything to them - to sit in total silence.  (Playing a video game or reading a book doesn't count!) It's hard to go very long.  It's hard for us to be quiet.  We live noisy lives with lots of activity and distractions going on around us. In today's Old Testament reading, there was a lot of noise.  God told Elijah to wait on Him.  What happened?  What did it sound like when the Lord passed by?  It's ok for us to be noisy, but God desires for us to be still at times and listen to Him.  Today we will learn about hearing the Holy Spirit - God's Counselor!

    Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit as Gift Giver
    HolySpiritDid you have a favorite super-hero when you were a child?  Did you want their “super powers?”  What powers would have been good to have? What would you have done with those powers? In our Epistle reading today, Paul talks about the special gifts that we have as believers which are given to us by the Holy Spirit.  While these gifts are not “super powers” in the Hollywood sense, they are super-natural powers, given to us by the Holy Spirit to do His work in the world.  As God works through His people, not for our glory but for His, some pretty amazing things happen!

    Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit

    HolySpiritToday we are beginning a series on the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is described as a Helper to those who believe Jesus is the Son of God.   We are studying John's gospel where we see Jesus promise the Holy Spirit and describe the work that the Holy Spirit will accomplish in and through His disciples.  We are confident that with the Holy Spirit living inside us, as believers, we can be living examples of Christ’s love each day.
