TODAY’S MEDITATION – What does Pentecost represent for us? (John 16:8)

My brother, my sister, Pentecost is the day that the Descent of the Holy Spirit was accomplished according to the promise of Jesus, 50 days after the Resurrection of Christ. It was on this day that the Holy Spirit descended in flames upon the apostles and the disciples of the Saviour. It was after this that they began to speak different languages and received the gift of preaching. Then, following Jesus’ instructions, the disciples began to go to the four corners of the world to reveal the Resurrection of Christ, to speak about the Saviour, and teach the Christian doctrine. What many do not know is that this day is also the day of the birth of the Church and the day of our salvation because Jesus had promised that the Spirit will convict us of sins, so that we can confess them to return to God … “And when he is come, he will convict the world concerning sin, righteousness, and judgment” (John 16:8). So we know that only those who are convinced of their sins, enough to confess and repent are saved.
May this day be a day when you reposition yourself as a Christian to be saved and useful for the Kingdom. Stay blessed in the name of Jesus.
