Pentecost Year B

Pentecost is about “inspiration”, a gift we all need to have in our lives.

Every day of our lives is filled with possibilities, the potential to change the World and bring God’s love into the lives of people. But every day is equally spoiled by the selfishness, pride and greed that can clog our lives and distract us from appreciating that still small voice of God, challenging us to heroism.

Big problem, heh!  

Needless to say, if our World wasn’t so self destructive, if we weren’t so busy, if we had more time to think about others and less time to worry about ourselves, how much better life would be for all of us.

Inspiration, that’s the answer. It begins with the realisation that, as part of God, we have a share in the whole of God’s creation, everything! There is nothing we do not have, nothing we need. 

So do not be put off with the size of the task in hand, do not listen to the doubtfilled, ‘I’m not worthy” voices in our heads.

Do as Mary and the Apostles did. Lay down the fears and doubts, the day to day concerns, the clutter that is so destructive. Watch, wait and listen and the opportunity to change the World will be yours.

God speaks to us often, challenging us to bring his love into the World. Find the time to listen, the courage to respond and what a difference we will make!  

Listen, God speaks to us through so many different people. Listen and respond!   

Just a thought.
