PENTECOST: THE BIRTHDAY OF THE CHURCH

At Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter, 50 days after that glorious resurrection, the Spirit of the living God fell upon the disciples as promised, and they were empowered for a worldwide mission. And that breath of the Holy Spirit which transformed them, which demonstrated Pentecost’s intent by signs and wonders on that day, continues to blow, advancing the Great Commission of Jesus Christ through successive generations until he comes again. Pentecost reminds us that what God starts, God completes. We are the means, but God is both the first mover and the glorious end himself. .... By his grace he saves us, by his promises he keeps us, and by his glorious power he shall raise us from the dead. This Pentecost, and every day, is a day to reorient our lives to the mission of God.
