Dear Fellow Saints in Christ, 

This is my favorite time of the year. That sentence may have surprised you. This is my favorite time of the year. I mean just look outside. The weather is struggling to decide what it is going to do next. Rain? Hot? Cold? Snow? Windy? Calm? Foggy? Each day is a new adventure. This is my favorite time of the year. I mean just look outside. The colors! The yellows, oranges, browns, and greens. Ok maybe we do not see all of the colors, but the colors we do see are amazing. This is my favorite time of the year. I mean just look out side. Or take a stroll through the grass. Take a listen. Do you hear the crunch? 
This is my favorite time of the year. Except, should it? I mean just look outside. Leaves cover the grass. Speaking of the grass it is beginning to turn a yellowish brown color. The once vibrant gardens full of fruit and veggies are dying or dead. The flowers that stood tall during the heat of the summer are beginning to wilt away as the temperatures begin to drop. The sun that would shine bright through the evening is fading away. Instead of the days being full of light, the days are becoming darker and darker. The creation that was once full of life. Quickly fades away. Or so it seems. 
This is my favorite time of the year. As one season ends. Another one quickly begins again. The ground begins to rest from it’s work. Yet, knowing that it’s work is never ending. It is just beginning again. 
This is my favorite time of the year. For it reminds me of my baptism. How the Holy Spirit does not stop resting from his work. In baptism, God “who in his own mercy saved us by the washing of the regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit whom he has poured out on us.” (Titus 3:5) This work that the Holy Spirit began was producing faith in your life. This was not a one time act thought. In fact, that the Holy Spirit keep us in our baptism on a daily basis. Where he renews us daily by keeping us reminded of the promises that were won for you by Jesus Christ. 
The Holy Spirit will keep on renewing your hearts and mind, day by day, hour by hour. That you will keep hearing the good and joyous news of Jesus Christ and keeping us united in Christ till the day of our everlasting life

In Christ,
Pastor Eric

3) Do you desire His forgivenss and intend to amend your life by the power of His Holy Spirit? (Romans 6:1-4)
