Pause for Thought

 

“Fill me anew”

This Sunday (31 May) we celebrate Pentecost and the coming of God Holy Spirit to ‘birth’ the church. Normally we have a Circuit Service and celebrate but this year is not normal. I suspect when Jesus first promised the Holy Spirit the disciples were confused and once more wondered what on earth Jesus was teaching them. This promise had probably slipped from memory by the time they were in their ‘locked room’ after Jesus died. Yet the helper Jesus promised God Holy Spirit came into their isolation, confusion and fear. Nothing has changed the promise is made to us as well in 2020 in our ‘lockdown’.

Desperate disciples are turned into eloquent evangelists. Scared people are turned into bold people. The point is transformation happened and happens with and through God Holy Spirit. Their confidence is not in themselves but in God who is with them in the darkest hour as a comforter, who equips them for his work at their most vulnerable, who provides wisdom for leadership at their most confused time.

The church as we know it is born and Jesus’ followers rise from the ashes of despair. Of course, the future was a different one than they could have envisaged and it was a hard and costly road but they did not walk it alone. God’s Holy Spirit with them all the way. We also have to trust God in our ‘lockdown’ for a way forward and like the disciples at Pentecost need to be open for a ‘new normal’ and ask God Holy Spirit to come to us in our need.

“Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.

Spirit of the living God, fall afresh on me.

Fill me anew. Fill me anew.

Spirit of the Lord fall afresh on me.”

Rev Neville
