“When the day of Pentecost came…All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit…” (Acts 2 v.1-4)
How anyone can suggest that being a Christian is boring, I fail to understand.
We have just celebrated the exciting time of Jesus resurrected from death to life when there were so many different accounts of Him appearing to his followers. This was followed by the day Jesus ascended into heaven, alive for evermore, with the promise that one day He will return.
The next exciting event is called Pentecost, when all the disciples were gathered together waiting for a special gift.
I don’t know about you, but I still get excited when the postman delivers a parcel for a special event.
On the day of Pentecost, God delivered a special gift in a very exciting way.
First of all, there was the sound of a violent wind, but it was not a destructive wind, and then there were tongues of fire which rested on each disciple. This was not destructive either, it was God’s way of giving power to His people. The Holy Spirit is the power of God and from then to now every Christian is given that power to work for Jesus Christ.
All of these events may seem to be out of this world, and they are, because they are from God’s world, and they are given to us to use to make a difference to the lives of others in the way that they have made a difference to our lives.
May you all feel empowered through the Holy Spirit as you witness about the love God has for each of you, shown through His Son, Jesus Christ.
With love in Him,
