Now that we have received the power of the Holy Spirit, we need to learn how to continue to grow and nurture our faith. We will explore the ways we can grow in holiness and understand the mission of Church so we can fulfill the mission of Christ to "make disciples of all nations".
The disciples were transformed from weak, scared men into bold witnesses of Christ when the Holy Spirit came upon them at Pentecost. We too can ask Jesus to send us his Spirit so we may boldly live out our Christian life.
Christ calls us to love our neighbor. Our family is our closest neighbor and we are called to love them as Christ loves us. The Christian ideal of loving God and neighbor is not an easy calling. This is where the Holy Spirit helps us. The Holy Spirit gives us the power to love as God loves.
We know that Jesus Christ saved us from our sins through his death and resurrection. The only proper response is for us to follow Christ as his disciple. If we are to follow Christ, we must repent from our sins, have faith, and forgive others.
