Super Powers and Pentecost

I confess I do enjoy the Summer Super Hero movies. They are just a fun escape. As a kid I used to imagine what it would be like to be Superman and be able to leap tall buildings and run faster than a speeding bullet. But what I really, really wanted to be able to do was fly! Oh such freedom that would bring!

This Sunday we will celebrate the gift of a “Super Power” called the Holy Spirit; The divine dwelling within each of us. All it takes to tap in to this amazing power is faith…The faith to say yes to Jesus; the faith to receive the gift of grace and allow God’s Holy Spirit to pour over you.

Acts 2:1-4  The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

When our sister Angie Jumper spoke last Sunday, she trusted the Holy Spirit to speak through her…I felt the rush of wind and the flames of the Holy One, even if I couldn’t see them with my eyes. Her words touched our hearts and moved our souls.

Lives change when you invite this “Super Power” in to your heart. It doesn’t require a fancy costume or a walk through radio-active goo. Jesus already did the super-human act of dying on the cross, for you, and for me. Before he left this earth He promised us a comforter, counselor, guide…The Holy Spirit.

My spirit soars free when I invite The Holy Spirit to fill my heart and form my day…and I can fly!

Holy Spirit come near and fill my cup until it spills over...that I might be a servant of your blessing. Show me your truth, your wisdom, your path for my life. Amen
