Without the Spirit, the Apostles would have remained confused and fearful men. With the Spirit, they grew in understanding of Jesus’ message and became bold sharers of the Good News.
The Holy Spirit’s power can frighten us or embolden us—or both! Much depends on our attitude and receptiveness to God’s will. We pray that you will invite the Spirit to guide you and enliven your faith—at Pentecost and beyond!
