The Day of Pentecost has arrived!

Sunday was the celebration of the Day of Pentecost. What a wonderful day to remember and celebrate the first time the Holy Ghost moved upon the early church. The disciples had waited 10 days for the great promise sent by Jesus. Then the third person in the Trinity descended down upon them and changed not only their life but the entire world. What would happen to us- the modern church, to have an encounter with the Holy Spirit as did the disciples? Today we lack respect and honor for the person of the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost). We often act as if He is something we can put on a shelf until we want an emotional feeling from God. As if He was only their for our high energy worship services but He is so much more. He is God the Holy Spirit. He is with us, so that we are empowered and able to BE the Church.

Let's remember that God in the form of the Holy Spirit came down from Heaven to fill up with Power from on High.
