Holy Spirit Guide Us to Peace

05-20-2022We Celebrate Worship Resource, Vol. 47, No. 2

We will... make our dwelling with him (or her)” (John 14:23), Jesus promises his disciples in his conversation with them at he Last Supper. He tells them that the Holy Spirit will come after he leaves. The Holy Spirit dwells with us, guides us, counsels us, advocates for us, and gives us peace. The leaders of the early church relied on the Holy Spirit when facing issues Jesus had not explicitly addressed. For instance, Paul and Barnabas asked them to decided what Jewish practices were necessary for Gentile Christians. A requirement of circumcision would have been a burden to men with no tradition of the practice. More significantly, it relegated women to second-class status. Guided by the Holy Spirit, the decision they made brought peace to the newly baptized Gentiles. Two thousand years later, the Holy Spirit still dwells with us and guides us. May we allow the Holy Spirit to guide us to peace, the peace that Jesus gave to his disciples with some of the last words before he died and in his first words to them after he rose.

How can you bring the peace of the Holy Spirit to your family, your community, and the world?

Espíritu Santo Guíanos hacia la Paz

"Haremos... haremos nuestra morada con él (o ella)” (Juan 14:23), Jesús promete a sus discípulos en su conversación con ellos en la Última Cena. Él les dice que el Espíritu Santo vendrá después de que él se vaya. El Espíritu Santo mora con nosotros, nos guía, nos aconseja, nos aboga y nos da la paz. Los líderes de la iglesia primitiva confiaban en el Espíritu Santo cuando enfrentaban problemas que Jesús no había abordado explícitamente. Por ejemplo, Pablo y Bernabé les pidieron que decidieran qué prácticas judías eran necesarias para los cristianos gentiles. Un requisito de la circuncisión habría sido una carga para los hombres sin tradición de la práctica. Más significativamente, relegó a las mujeres a un estatus de segunda clase. Guiados por el Espíritu Santo, la decisión que tomaron trajo paz a los gentiles recién bautizados. Dos mil años después, el Espíritu Santo todavía mora con nosotros y nos guía. Permitamos que el Espíritu Santo nos guíe hacia la paz, la paz que Jesús les dio a sus discípulos con algunas de sus últimas palabras antes de morir y en sus primeras palabras después de resucitar.

¿Cómo puedes traer la paz del Espíritu Santo a tu familia, tu comunidad y el mundo?
