Today we taklk about the holy spirit.The Lenten season has been powerful for the last few years. During this time poeple usually feel that they're realationship with Jesus and the Holy spirit deepens.The last few Sunday topics was faith and how do we go forward with the rest of our lives after meeting Christ. Today we dig deeper on how the Holy Spirit is With Us.
We are looking at part two of a series we started last week. This I believe is necessary especially in reflecting upon Easter and the entire season of Lent. Having Pastored for almost 30 years now, if there is one thing I have seen, it is how people in the midst of a focused time of engagement with Jesus, either on weekend retreats, or week-long conference, maybe even an extended missions trip, or a time frame like Lent and Easter, where our attention is captured and we seem to be in a spiritual mode for an extended period of time, the days and months just after that elevated awareness, can be quite the opposite, and we may even feel like we're just hanging on.
A short two part series for those who have found themselves coming down off a wonderful time during the Easter Season. It is the same for those of you who have gone on a long spiritual retreat or been on an extended mission trip. It might even be for you who have been walking with Jesus for a time and because of some struggles or hardship, maybe some disappointments wonder why you feel distant from God, even though you have experienced Jesus in some wonderful ways. Today's message concerns the necessity of faith.
Easter is here and we are so grateful to be ones who not only understand it's religious significance as a Christian Holiday, but what it actually means for our future as followers of Jesus and that we are experiencing that future even in our lives now.
