We just passed the day of Pentecost on the calendar. In the Evangelical circles in which I run the day is largely ignored. It doesn’t carry the fanfare that Easter or Christmas receive. It doesn’t even get the acclaim of holidays like Mothers Day or Fathers Day. Generally speaking most Christian’s don’t even know the day has come and passed.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not advocating a new holiday, but I desperately don’t want to forget the message of Pentecost. Pentecost is about waiting on God to move. It’s about fulfilling the great commission. It’s about taking the gospel to the nations. It’s about how the story goes on long after the ascension of Christ. I challenge you to look deeper into the day of Pentecost. (By the way you can catch some helpful background on Pentecost here by reading a brief outline I wrote in 2007).

That is very sad indeed! We should celebrate it as the birthday of the church!
Here’s a link to a post I found about Pentecost that I thought was quite insightful!
I’m just glad that YOU get the significance of it!
