Each year, we honor our graduating high school seniors for all of their hard work and faithfulness as they get ready to launch into their next phase, whether that’s a career, further education, or the military. This day also happens to land on Pentecost. I couldn’t help but notice the theological significance of this confluence of dates. In Pentecost, we see the church given the Holy Spirit to empower the disciples for a new mission: to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension throughout the whole world.
As we get ready to send these seniors out, I am confident that that same Pentecost Spirit continues to empower and send Jesus’ disciples today. As they leave home or begin to make their own way in the world I know that they aren’t totally on their own. The Spirit reminds them of Jesus’ teachings; He helps them to follow in His footsteps. God will not abandon them or forsake them, even when they have to learn things the hard way.
The words of Paul to the Philippians are particularly appropriate for the young adult life stage: “for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure” (Philippians 2:13).
Seniors, know that as you go, you go with God. Growing up is hard and sometimes confusing, but God doesn’t necessarily ask that you graduate top of your class or make a lot of money. What God asks of you is faithfulness: faithfulness in prayer, in love of neighbor, and in using your gifts and talents not just for your sake, but for the sake of God and others. We, the Church, are here to cheer you on, to lend an ear, to pray with you, or to feed you a good meal just when you think you can’t stomach anymore instant noodles. All you need do is ask.
As I transition into working in Adult Discipleship and focus on our college students and young adults, I’m excited to be a piece in this next step of the journey. No matter how far you travel, Christ Church will always be your home. If you are sticking around, I hope you will continue to connect with us and with Jesus. We look forward to seeing the work of the Spirit on display in your life!
