Happy are the unhappy!

Today is Pentecost Sunday.

I can't remember what the reading was for this morning and it isn't written on the meeting lead, but the sermon continued on with th beatitudes.

The beatitudes are the opposite of what the world teaches. Jesus tips things upside down.

We should mourn our own sins and the sins of others but we can't do this unless we are filled with the holy spirit.

The three stages of Jesus' life are Bethlehem, which represents God with us, Calvary, which represents God for us, and Pentecost, which represents God in us. Christians often get stuck between Calvary and Pentecost, we accept the atonement but not the infilling of the Holy Spirit.

We need to be out of our depth in God's love, leaning on His strength, putting our focus on Him.
