Hello Everyone, Grace and Peace in Jesus Christ to you,
Since I had a doctor’s appointment on Tuesday and did not get to the office I totally forgot about sending this out.
The destructive power of our earth’s weather systems was on full display on Monday with the destruction of Moore, OK, and the deaths of 24 people including 10 children. Our hearts go out to all families especially those who are mourning those who died. We pray for healing, wholeness, and a rebuilding of lives. We pray that the Holy Spirit will bring comfort, courage, and strength for all in the area.
This Sunday is “Trinity Sunday” and you won’t find the word “Trinity” in the Bible. The strongest evidence in the Bible for the Trinity is the gospel of John as Jesus declares to be one with and in the Father and the Father is with and in Jesus. Together they will send the Holy Spirit who is the presence of Jesus and God in us. Our scripture lessons for this Sunday, with minimal commentary, are:
Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31 – Wisdom’s gifts. (Holy Spirit)
Psalm 8 – Divine Majesty (God)
Romans 5:1-5 – Peace with God through Jesus Christ and God’s love poured into our hearts with Holy Spirit (Trinity).
John 16:12-15 – What the Father has Jesus has and what Jesus has the Spirit has and it is given to us.
Have a great week serving God by sharing the love of Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Peace in Christ,
Pastor Gary Taylor
