The Gift of the Holy Spirit

Beginning back at Holy Week and then Easter itself we read accounts about Christ’s unselfish pouring out of His love for the forgiveness of our sins. Then throughout the Easter Season, in the stories from the Acts of the Apostles, we see examples of the early Christians as they receive the Gospel news of Jesus’ death and resurrection. We are inspired and challenged by how their lives were changed as they accepted Jesus and then gave themselves to spreadingthe Gospel message.

Then over these past two weeks we have read about Christ’s ascension and then His breathing of the Holy Spirit onto the apostles at Pentecost (John 20: 19-23).

My friends, Jesus has breathed the gift of the Holy Spirit on us as well. Yes, Jesus has ascended, but with the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit He has called us into action. Empowered with the Holy Spirit we are called to continue to spread the good news of the Gospel. Our faith in Jesus and our call to action is a unique and incredible gift. It is a gift that the more we give it away the more we gain. As we share Christ’s love with others we experience His love for us in a deeper way.

We are all so blessed! Let’s go out, filled with the Holy Spirit, and share the gift of our faith and the love of Jesus Christ with someone new today! Amen.

Brian is a Christian author and speaker. Brian, a lifelong Catholic, felt his life was forever changed when God spoke to his heart while attending an eight day silent Christian retreat in November of 2011. Soon after that retreat Brian founded 4th Day Letters and Broken Door Ministries. With the God inspired message of mercy and unconditional love that was placed on his heart during that retreat, Brian has been impacting others all over the country and around the world with his weekly letters, his talks, and his all day Christian retreats. In June of 2014, Brian’s life was again impacted in a very dramatic way when his eyesight suddenly became permanently impaired. The initial diagnosis was Multiple Scleroses (MS) but in December of 2019 the diagnosis was corrected to MOG antibody disease, a rare neurological disease. This health challenge has only served to draw Brian closer to God and bolster the importance of this timely yet ageless message.
