My beloved God’s people of Same, may the grace andpeace of God be with you (Col. 1:2)As we come to the close of Eastertide and as we are in that period of waiting of the Holy Spirit “Pentecost”,let us bear our witness in love for God himself is love and he loves us very much even to the point of dying for us on the Cross.
The name of God is love, and to witness that love of God is not easy for we are sent to people who do not know God, people who are always spiritually grumbling, people who are not of my tribe, neither my blood brothers nor sisters. Therefore, we are sent like prophets.
Prophet Ezekiel tells us that Jesus is the Good Shepherd and that is also what we read from the Gospel of (John 10:11-13) that the Good Shepherd knows his sheep.
Since we celebrated the Pentecost last year a time like this, we have journeyed together the whole year, climbing mountains and coming down to the lowlands of life many times. Sometimes we were tired especially when we did not involve the Holy Spirit in our journey. I am sure we have different experiences in that journey in which if everybody was asked to narrate it would take a lot of time to explain.
Pentecost is special days as we celebrate the day that the Apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit. As we celebrate the gifts of the Holy Spirit, let us pray God the Holy Spirit to stay with us and always to guide us in our journey to God’s Kingdom. Let us also know that as we receive the Holy Spirit we are obliged to do our apostolate as St. Peter was told “do you love me more than others? His response was “Yes Lord, you know everything, you know that I love you” Jesus told him, “feed my lambs” (John 21: 15-17) this is an obligation for every Christian who is baptized and confirmed.
My beloved, I wish you God’s blessings during the celebration of this feast and encourage you to show your faith in your life style and in your actions, by the Holy Spirit to uphold justice and righteousness.
