Liturgical Season – Transformation, Induction/Celebration
Symbol – Nkotimsefo Mpua
Represents Service and Loyalty – Readiness to Serve
This season beckons us to be positioned and led by the Holy Spirit. The word used in our Bible for Holy Spirit, “ruach” is a feminine word and reminds us of the nurturing and guiding attributes of Our Creator.
We believe in the life giving, anointing Holy Spirit. It is the power of the Holy Spirit as the Sustainer of life that brings the new birth and multidimensional sanctification. This breath of life pervades the universe, sustains it and fills our lives as we dedicate ourselves to participate in the work that Jesus, the Christ began.
To continue that good work Jesus started is illustrated in our adinkra symbol for this season. The symbol, Nko-tee-m-see-fo M-poo-a represents service and loyalty; being guided by the Holy Spirit requires us to service with a level of consistency and quality that represents our faithfulness to God.
Through the Holy Spirit, we are transformed from a deadly state of indifference toward the oppression and death we see around us into living, anointed and committed disciples. In the power of the Holy Spirit, we think, speak and act in ways that demonstrate the victorious living of a chosen people who know from whence we have come and to where we are going.
Memory Verse: PHILIPPIANS 3: 12-16
12-14 I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.
15-16 So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it. (THE MESSAGE VERSION)
