Today…we see the Bible talk of Pentecost. Pentecost is a BIG deal in the history of the early church. Today, we see a major event – as the Holy Spirit is given to the church.
The Bible, and the focus of our faith is about Jesus – He is WHY we do church, He is WHY we preach the Gospel, He is the focus of our faith. Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. If we can trust in HIM we can have eternal life.
And God has chosen us – the church to take that message to the world. But he promised he wouldn’t leave us to our own devices – Jesus promised to send us someone to help. He sent us the third person of the Trinity, The Holy Spirit. Today…we read about that. We see how the Holy Spirit came to the World on Pentecost, and we see some promises of his ministry to come.
