Many have been sent and through the Holy Spirit they share the joyful Word of God. And those with a desire to listen, have had their hearts opened and the Grace of God poured in. Their lives and those of their families are transformed, they rejoice and are glad.

Then there are others who listen but are not ready or willing to listen to the whole message. They listen in part and so receive in part. And if they are not careful will lose it all.

Then there are others who reject the messengers of God and the important life giving message they bring. Their lofty thoughts have convinced them that they themselves are the ‘chosen’ messengers. Or that they know better, what fruit do they bear?

Holy Spirit dwell in me, be my guide always. Amen

Acts 16:11–15

GOSPEL
John 15:26B16:4a

Jesus said to his disciples:
“When the Advocate comes whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, he will testify to me. And you also testify, because you have been with me from the beginning.

“I have told you this so that you may not fall away. They will expel you from the synagogues; in fact, the hour is coming when everyone who kills you will think he is offering worship to God. They will do this because they have not known either the Father or me. I have told you this so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you.”
