A MOMENT TO PONDER OVER PENTECOST; GALATIANS 5;22-25.
As we approach Pentecost lets ponder about the wonderful gift brought by the Holy Spirit in our lives as believers. Galatians 5 verse 22;love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control speaks to you, breathe them in slowly as verse 25 says; Since we live by the Spirit let us keep in step with the Spirit. Just give a lot of thought to achieve a different perspective and keep being drawn to new openings/openness and its fruit wakefulness. Awake so you may be open to let the Holy Spirit work through you to help you in your Christian journey witnessing to Jesus' love to all.
Echoe and practice the command of loving one another-the great charge to us from Jesus, praying hard as you draw others to His Kingdom Matthew 28;18-20 Waken me O Lord, open my eyes to your glory, Open my ears to your story, Open my heart to your fire, Open my will to your desire. Waken me O Lord, to your risen power, to your presence every hour, to your never-ending love, to your coming from above. Waken me O Lord; to your peace here today,to your meeting in the way, to your speaking in a friend, to your guiding to the end.
Let Pentecost be a time of openings and openness,wakening and awaking,for us all to recognise the Holy Spirit moving in our lives. Open our eyes through prayer and purpose,enabling us to draw near to you O Lord and reflect your love in serving others.
O Lord God creator of all
Open my eyes to beauty
Open my mind to wonder
Open my ears to others
And Open my heart to you.
