LHM – July 2022 Message


Jesus promised He would ask God to send another helper to His followers.   This helper, Jesus said would be with them forever.  The Holy Spirit, sent by God the Father and His Son would continue the Father’s work on Earth.   The days following Pentecost Sunday focus on Jesus’ life and ministry.  This church season is referred to as ” Ordinary Time.”   Ordinary, from the Latin word   ”ordinarius” and means orderly.  The order in the church is time to focus on Gospel business, mission, and service.  The church has determined times for celebration and feasting.   The church’s theme uses quiet growth, sermons, and Bible readings.  It celebrates the whole life of Jesus and His teachings and the meaning of living as His disciples.  It is how we continue to live with them today.. Ordinary time makes up most of the latter half of the church year.  The church is usually decorated in green, that symbolizes life and hope.  As the summer warms. plants sprout and bring out new buds and leaves; so should we use this time to grow in our faith and discipleship. 

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the apostles at the first Pentecost was a unique event in the history of the   church.  The Holy Spirit’s activity continues today.  The Spirit, our Helper, invites us to pray for comfort and hope and strengthens us in our faith.  He reminds us that Christ, our Savior from sin and death, holds us in His undying grip, and helps us to firmly hold   Him.  The Spirit does not give us over to discouragement and uncertainty but consoles us.   He confirms in us the belief that God’s Word is true and His promises sure. The Holy Spirit gives us joy in the midst of grief and peace in the face of fear.   He calls and gathers believers to Christ and His Church.   

We, Christians pray for the continued outpouring of the Spirit and the fulfillment of His sanctifying work.
