The Era Of The Spirit!

4 Jun 2017 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on The Era Of The Spirit!

The feast we celebrate today marks the inauguration of the final era in human history: the era of the Spirit. Today’s Scripture readings remind us of some of the marvelous consequences as a result of the gift of the Spirit, e.g. the ability to communicate with others no matter what the language differences.

The Old Testament gave us a number of hints as to what God has in mind for our destiny in the Spirit, e.g. “…beating swords into plowshares…” etc. Jesus taught in the New Testament that if our faith is strong enough, we could move mountains or be like the mustard seed, so tiny to start, but ends up as a large tree. Jesus promised that He would come again. We miss the boat if we fail to recognize that He has in fact done so by sending us His Spirit. Our job is to transform our world (swords to plowshares, etc.) by first spreading the faith. As has been pointed out: with God we can do anything; without Him we can do nothing.

In this final era of the Spirit, we are no longer waiting for God; rather, God is waiting for us!
