We are all familiar with Jesus’ command in Matthew 28:19 known as the “Great Commission.”  This is where Jesus gives His final instruction before ascending to heaven.  He told us to take His message of hope and salvation and carry it into our own neighborhoods and even to the ends of the world.  Yet along with this instruction came a caution: “Wait for the gift my Father has promised.” (Acts 1:4-5) As we know from hindsight, the gift the disciples needed in order to accomplish Jesus’ command was the Holy Spirit.

On June 5, we celebrated Pentecost Sunday.  This is the day where the Holy Spirit was first received by the followers of Christ.  They had waited in Jerusalem in accordance with Jesus’ caution to them, and 50 days after the resurrection, the promised gift arrived.  Jesus knew they would need to be equipped and empowered by His very own Spirit in order to share His truth in power and reach the lost.

This same principle holds true for us today!  We have been infused by this very same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead (Rom. 8:11) and we must rely on Him to work in and through us to effectively share the gospel message with the lost.  This month, let’s give prayerful attention to His ministry to all believers:

Presence

the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.  John 14:17

~ Give thanks to God for the gift of the Holy Spirit within us.

~ Pray that the people of God would grow in our awareness

   of His presence both within us and around us.

~ That Christ followers throughout our region would give    

   precedence to the Holy Spirit in our spheres of influence

   and ministry.
 

Understanding

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26

~ Pray that believers would maintain a teachable heart and

   mind, willing to receive teaching, correction and

   revelation from the Holy Spirit.

~ Pray that every disciple in our region would be willing to

   take initiative and act upon the things that we receive

   from His Spirit.
 

Peace and Purpose

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.  John 14:27

~ In a world full of trouble, it takes intentionality to take hold

   of the peace of Christ.  Pray that we would know this

   peace even in the midst of hardship.  (Phil. 4:6)

~ Pray that when believers are tempted to doubt and fear,

   that the strength of the Spirit would give us confidence

   and continue to propel us forward.

~ Pray that God’s people would have a higher perspective

   on our circumstances, trust God’s Sovereignty, and be

   able to see opportunity and growth through the trials that

   come our way. (Jam. 1:2-5)
 

Telling the Story

“When the Advocate comes, whom I will send to you from the Father—the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father—he will testify about me. And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning.  John 15:26-27

~ The role of every believer is to tell the story of who Jesus

   is and what He has done in our lives.  Pray that all

   believers in our region would do this with boldness, and in

   partnership with the Holy Spirit.

~ Telling our story often involves a level of transparency

   that is outside our comfort zone.  Pray that we would grow

   in both the humility and confidence that Jesus 

   demonstrated, and be willing to share freely with those

   who need to hear the gospel message.

~ Pray that as believers give testimony of Jesus, the

   message would be received with grace and conviction,

   leading to salvation of the lost.

New Opportunities

Please pray with us that God would continue to awaken His Body to engage and invest in Kingdom advancing efforts throughout Southern New England. May God’s Kingdom come in our communities as it is in heaven!
