What is Pentecost Sunday? (Please Scroll further down for Bible Verses)
On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate the receiving of the Holy Spirit by the first Christians (the disciples). Jesus’ Ascension happened 40 days after Easter, and Pentecost happened 10 days after this (so Pentecost happened 50 days after Easter). Jesus had promised that after he left the earth (physically), The Holy Spirit would come and be a Comforter, Counselor, Helper and Guide to the Christians (John 16:5-15). The Day of Pentecost is the first fulfillment of this promise.
The Holy Spirit is a gift from God the Father to us his children. The Holy Spirit is a representative of Jesus Christ (John 14:26). On the day of Pentecost, The Holy Spirit descended upon the believers in the upper room, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2). Pentecost is known as the birthday of the church, because after Pentecost, the early church began in full force. Christians began to spread the gospel all around the world, by the power of the Holy Spirit. When Peter first received the Holy Spirit, he spoke to the crowd and about 3,000 people believed and were baptized. (Acts 2:41)
We gratefully celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit today and always. The Gift of The Holy Spirit is not only available for a special set of Christians. The Gift of The Holy Spirit is available to all followers of Jesus. Praise God for His precious gift to us! Happy Pentecost Sunday – May we live our lives honoring and glorifying God.
