WPC Warm Up, May 18, 2015
When Jesus told the disciples that he was leaving, their hearts were heavy with grief, confusion, and despair. But Jesus, always the good shepherd caring for his sheep, left them with a promise: they would NOT be left alone. He promised something extraordinary and unbelievable which we read about in Acts 2:1–21. This is the story of the Holy Spirit coming at Pentecost, bringing the power and love of God in a new and unexpected way. The really good news is not simply that this story happened, but that it happens. Day after day, God continues to love us with the extravagant outpouring of his Spirit. The really good news is that God wants YOU to be a part of this sharing of divine power and grace. Take a moment right now to pray and ask the Lord how and to whom he wants you to be a bearer of his love. You were, in fact, made for this.
