Celebrating Pentecost Sunday

Well, I began my birthday week with this.

I must say, our little Podunk town has some of the best Mexican food on the planet. Even better, today is Pentecost Sunday. The Holy Spirit in our lives makes all the difference. Christians don't all wear the same clothes or have the same hairdo or have secret handshakes. For the most part, we look like any other person you'd meet on the job or pass on campus. But there are 9 characteristics that mark the true Christian. These are known as the fruit of the Spirit and are indications that a new life has begun in our hearts. 

How much "fruit" of the Holy Spirit is growing in your life? In mine? Today might be a good day to ask ourselves that question:

  • Love
  • Joy 
  • Peace 
  • Patience
  • Kindness
  • Goodness
  • Faithfulness
  • Gentleness
  • Self-control
