Celerating Pentecost

Pentecost (Acts 2:1) is the Greek name for the Hebrew Festival of weeks (Exodus 34:22), which was the celebration on first fruits of the wheat harvest. This was the festival in which the Holy Spirit was poured out in Jerusalem (Acts 2:1-4) and is also considered by many the “birthday” of the Church, as the first reference to converts being “added to the church” follows the Spirit’s outpouring (Acts 2:47).

On our calendar, Sunday June 9th was the Day of Pentecost. Let’s take a moment this week and reflect and thank God for sending the “other comforter” (John 14:26) to the earth and giving us a Body called the Church, to do the work of God’s Kingdom here on the earth. Happy Pentecost!
