We continue to celebrate the birth of the church this 1st Sunday after Pentecost. Last week we heard how the Holy Spirit, God’s breath of life, came to God’s disciples, birthing the church and empowering the church to join God in His mission to His creation.
This week we continue to learn to be aware of the spiritual, unseen, reality of life as we shift our focus from the Holy Spirit to the devil and unclean spirits. The main message is: you should be aware but not afraid. The devil and his servants are real but ultimately already defeated by the cross of Christ. The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead now lives in us, so where the evil one and his servants whisper notions of chaos and death, we live with the Spirit the brings order, love, joy and life.
Join us this Sunday as we explore the reality of our unseen surroundings, how to be aware of their influences and how to discern the voice of the Holy Spirit in our daily lives.
