Wind and fire are forces of nature that command our attention. The Holy Spirit is a force of God’s nature that demands our attention.
The Holy Spirit pushes us, compels us, directs us, and sets us on fire to imitate Jesus. The Holy Spirit fuels our passion for justice, our desire to forgive, our impulse to reach out with compassion, and our commitment to love.
Be swept away by the wind. Feel the heat of the fire. Trust the movement of the Spirit in your life.
And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were. Then there appeared to them tongues as of fire, which parted and came to rest on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:2-4a
