Bethany Bullet - June 15, 2011

This past Sunday, Rev. Dr. Loren Kramer reminded us that the Holy Spirit rests ON us. Even as He fell on Jesus as His Baptism so to the Holy Spirit has lighted upon us, brought us to faith, and called us to follow Jesus.

This same Spirit also lives IN us. Jesus breathed on His disciples after His resurrection with the words, “Receive the Holy Spirit” and thus commissioned them with the ministry of the Gospel.

That same breath of life is one we’ve received; that same commission is our commission. We too are blessed to be a part of a Gospel ministry. The Holy Spirit also works THROUGH us.

In this world, the primary way through which Jesus is working and through which people are meeting Jesus is the church, you, and me. Jesus is working through the people of God around the world and here at Bethany through whom the Spirit is connecting Christ to people.

To hear last week’s sermon check out the Bethany website ( and our podcasts.
