This weekend we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit. The creation account in Genesis tells us that “a mighty wind,” the “spirit” of God hovered over the waters and brought life and light out of chaos and darkness. The Holy Spirit is “the Lord and Giver of Life,” and this is true both on a natural and supernatural level. To worship the Holy Spirit, then, demands that we stand against all that destroys life.
On the first Easter night, Jesus breathes His Spirit upon the apostles, that they too might forgive sin and bring new life out of chaos and darkness. A second Creation account is taking place here. The same Spirit who causes sin to flee will cause death to flee as well. Let’s work to end abortion.
