A Message From The Pastor

MAY THEME: Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire

Today is Pentecost Sunday, the day when churches around the world celebrate the fulfillment of Christ’s promise in Acts 2 to send Holy Spirit.

If you've been with us for the teaching on Holy Spirit this month, you might be wondering “Why the urgency”? You could be questioning the passion in the preaching and the insistence that we all need to be baptized, or re-filled with Holy Spirit. Well; first and foremost it's Biblical. But it's more than that.

Do you ever question why many mainline churches are dead or dying? Why is there only a handful of people huddled far from the altar on any given Sunday? Here’s what Paul told Timothy; recorded under inspiration of Holy Spirit so that today we are without excuse: “But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power.”

There are lots of answers to my question - but they all stem from the same root: NO HOLY SPIRIT. Over the years many Pastors, Priests and Ministers bought into the lie that church has 'moved on' - that Holy Spirit was for then; not for now. The accuracy of Paul’s prophetic word to Timothy is stunning.

The saddest part of this erosion in Christian Faith is, once you remove Holy Spirit, how long is it before salvation loses its significance? Why would we bother sharing together in communion services? Before long, all Christian sacraments and traditions are relegated to church history books and we no longer adhere to sound doctrine. To put it bluntly, all hell breaks loose.

So again; why the urgency? Because we are never more than one generation from an apostate church. If we do not preach on Holy Spirit; if we are not encouraging each of us to be filled – daily – this church will lose its identity as a beacon of life and hope in a decaying civilization. And we don't want that.

Blessings,

Rev. Ginette Howse
