True Discipleship

 

 I’m very fond of the hymns that we sing at Carmel and naturally am more familiar with the Welsh hymns contained in Caneuon Ffydd. We will be celebrating Whitsun in June this year and will be reminded that when the Holy Spirit descends, everyone knows that it has happened.

When the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost it was “ a sound like the blowing of a violent wind” filling the place (Acts 2 v 1-4) and everyone saw its influence in their midst. In the house of Cornelius (Acts 10:45) the Jewish believers were astonished that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles. Everyone knew that something very special had taken place among them and they were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit could make such a difference. Turning people who were previously non believers into believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and bringing them into the family of faith as they were born again as children of God.

At Carmel we long for another outpouring of the Holy Spirit and pray with the hymnist

 

“Spirit of the living Lord fall afresh on me”
