THOUGHTS ON STEWARDSHIP AS A WAY OF LIFE
“The Counselor, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you.”
John 14: 26
The materialism of our society lures us to concentrate more on what we want than on what God wants for us and from us. It is good to know that when we are confused by our stewardship responsibilities, we can call on the Holy Spirit to show us the way.
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the doors were locked,
where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst.
John 20: 19

On the day of Pentecost when the seven weeks of Easter had come to an end, Christ’s Passover is fulfilled in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, manifested, given, and communicated as a divine person: of his fullness, Christ, the Lord, pours out the Spirit in abundance. On that day, the Holy Spirit is depicted symbolically as tongues of fire that come to rest upon the apostles. This image is most appropriate for the event in the upper room in Jerusalem and the events that follow. Why does the spirit come to rest upon the apostles as fire and in no other symbol such as the dove that also represents peace that they so desperately need or as the same cloud that took Jesus on the day of his ascension to heavenly glory? First and foremost, this is a moment of transformation for the apostles. During the early ministry, the apostles were full of questions, misunderstandings, and fear. Upon receipt of the Holy Spirit as fire, they are empowered with wisdom, understanding, and courage. They are now able to fulfill the call of the Lord to make disciples of all nations. Second, and in conjunction with the first, they are called to become prophets of the new age, speaking with the Lord’s own voice and for their new found faithfulness being subject to the fate of persecution like the prophets of old.
