ANGLICAN BOARD OF MISSION (ABM) PEW REFLECTIONS: Sunday 5 June 2022 – Pentecost Sunday
In St Luke’s gospel there is an account of the descent of the Holy Spirit on to the disciples in Jerusalem. Rushing wind was heard and tongues of fire were seen. Some heard their own languages from around the Mediterranean being spoken by Galileans. Meanwhile, as ever, some scoffed and mocked. Peter assures the crowd that this is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel, after which time everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved. If I were to examine myself, would I find times in my life where I had mocked others for their faith in God? How might I look for the Spirit in my life?
- Jesus Christ, Lord of the Church, help me to recognise when your Spirit is asking me to do something, and to do precisely that.
