"Unshackling The Holy Spirit"
Sid Earnheart Preaching
Pentecost Sunday is a commemoration and celebration of the receiving of the Holy Spirit by the early church. It is how we commemorate the birthday of the church.
Have you ever considered the importance of the Church being baptized in the Holy Spirit? Scripture indicates the role of the Holy Spirit is to provide us with guidance, wisdom, and knowledge as we navigate this world. Additionally, the Holy Spirit instills faith, hope, and love inside of us. Yet, time and again my responses to the Holy Spirit are grounded in doubt and apprehension.
I think about how big and free God’s love is for us, and I look around the world and I see the limits that we, as humans, have placed on these gifts from God. I find myself placing shackles on the Holy Spirit in my mind and my heart and that limits my ability to use the gifts it instilled inside of me. In turn that shapes how I respond to issues in communities and society. The same is true for the Church and its ministries.
Tune in this Sunday as we discuss: 1. What Pentecost Sunday is and why it is important; 2. A better understanding of the role of the Holy Spirit in the church and in our lives; 3. How enriching our understanding of the Holy Spirit will breathe new life into the Church, its ministries, and our lives.
See you Sunday,
