Capsule for the Day
Today is Pentecost. For many, today marks the birth of the Church and Her mission. Today, we experience the Holy Spirit setting us free from our fears; fears that lock us up and makes us less who we are. Today we aren't just set free from fears, we are set free for the Good, and to be good.
Today, we gather in worship and we ask the Holy Spirit for different gifts. One of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is knowledge of God that lead us to knowledge of self and others. This knowledge liberates us. This knowledge empowers us and skills us for our mission and purpose in life.
Today, we are sent on that mission... "as the Father has sent me so am I sending you". The One who sent is greater than the one He sent. So let's not be afraid. Let's go to the One who sends, share our struggle with Him. For although we might have failed on the mission, He doesn't fail us.
