The Indwelling: Celebrating the gift of the Holy Spirit

The gifts of God reveal his presence and we have celebrated those gifts throughout this month: the gift of eternal life; the gift of Scripture; the gift of heaven; the gift of anointed service; and the gift of Jesus our Savior.  On this last Sunday of 2017, we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.  All of God’s gifts are intended to awaken us to his presence and the gift of the Holy Spirit is the ultimate intimacy.  The creation reveals that God is “for us.”  The incarnation reveals that God is “with us.”  With the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, we discover that God is “in us!”
