Latest news and 'Thought for the day'
A thought from Dave Howarth (Associate Vicar from Holy Cross)
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Jesus (Acts 1.8)
What on earth is Jesus doing? We may well have asked a question similar to that recently. Whatever the answer is, he is doing it through the Holy Spirit.
It’s a common mistake to divide the Lord Jesus and the Spirit, as if God the Father and God the Son are really interested in salvation, but the Spirit is operating a kind of side-show, and He’s concerned just to boost our feelings and do the kind of things we can’t explain in any other way.
But the Bible never divides the work of the Spirit and the work of the Son. Indeed, elsewhere in the Bible the Spirit is called “the Spirit of Christ”! It’s the Son, along with his Father, who sends the Spirit into all his people. He sends the Spirit into his people to send us out to bear witness to Christ. What marks out a Spirit-filled person? They speak of Jesus.
So what on earth is Jesus doing? By the power of his Spirit, he is ensuring his people witness to him, to the ends of the earth. In other words, he’s doing the best thing of all. Don’t miss the 10am on Sunday to find out more.
