God’s breath of life was the umbilical cord for the creation of each of us.  That cord was never cut.  We are forever connected to God; thus we have an intrinsic need for Him that nothing else can fulfill.  The umbilical cord is the source of life for a developing fetus, providing everything it needs to survive.  As Christians, our connection to God is through Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, giving our souls all that we need to thrive and survive.

The Holy Spirit is our Helper and Counselor, to lead, guide, speak to our inner souls, and give comfort, peace, healing and hope so that we will grow in faith to better serve the Kingdom of Christ and bring glory to God, the Father.

That is why we celebrate Pentecost today.  It was at Pentecost, that the Holy Spirit gifted and empowered those who were present so that they could begin ministering to others and start building Christ’s church.  That same Spirit is alive today, seeking to empower us and dwell within us that we will grow deeper in faith and stronger in the love, grace and peace of Jesus the Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Praise be to God.
