Charismatic renewal has something special to give to the Church which is the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The Mission of CCRN
The mission of the Church is the mission of the Charismatic – To Witness to the Gospel,
– To be living instrument to the Church (Lumen Gentum 33),
– Proclaiming the good news,
– Bringing the good news to every strata of the society
We are called to not be cradle charismatics but committed charismatic. Committed Charismatic seeks good and quality food. Committed Charismatic wants to be a source of blessings to others.
The grace of Pentecost makes us renewed, spirit filled not spiritually spent!
Like Joshua, our cry should be “As for me and my family, we will serve the Living Lord.”
Like Isaiah, we must faithfully say, “Here I am, sent me”
Like Jesus, we can say, “I have come to do your will.”
Like Mary, we’ll humbly submit ourselves to the will of God saying, “I’m your handmaid of the Lord, be it done to me according to your will”
Like Peter, we shall say, “Lord, to whom shall we go, you have the message of eternal life.”
Like the disciples with trial said, “Better to obey God than man”
Like the writer of the first John, we should say, “what we have seen, heard, believe, we shall live”
Let’s be faithful so as to receive a good report from God on the last day.
Jesus said “I hold my people responsible for lost soul.”
