Welcome to Pentecost
Only a few days ago Christians were celebrating Pentecost, the day the Spirit was formally introduced in the earth. If you are not familiar with Pentecost, it’s okay. I’m glad you are here. As a matter of fact this is the perfect time for all of us to reconnect to the meaning Pentecost and the impact of the Holy Spirit.
Our hearts, our souls cannot survive this journey without the Holy Spirit.
It is the third person of the Holy Trinity. It is our Comforter and our Strength.
Our GOD n Me.
To believe in God is to believe in the Holy Spirit.
..."Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit." ~Acts 1:4-5 (NIV)
Before Jesus left, he promised his disciples that the Holy Spirit would pick where He left off. It would come upon them and guide them in their Christian journey. In Acts 2, the Spirit fell on the faithful amongst strangers in the form of tongues of fire. It connected God’s people with unbelievers of every language. It used their trust in Jesus as an open door to glory and salvation.
All to Jesus I surrender, Now I feel the sacred flame. Oh, the joy of full salvation! Glory, glory to His name!*
The Spirit fell. Peter preached. 3000 souls were saved because they surrendered all, and their lives would never be the same. God is waiting to use our tongues, our voices, our very existence to usher in the Spirit of the Living God.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. ~Romans 8:18-19 (NIV)
What good is celebrating Pentecost if we don’t live the life?
All to Jesus I surrender, Humbly at His feet I bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken; Take me, Jesus, take me now.*
For a lot of people, Pentecost was different this year. Me, too. God is presenting us with a defining moment, asking,
“Are you mine or not? Will you surrender your fear, your thoughts, your fears to me or not?”
