Pentecost...Christians know about the historic event but how many tap into the present reality?
Pentecost may be the fulcrum on which all of our modern ministry depends. God opened the windows of heaven and shouted, "Watch out below!" on that marvelous day of fulfilled prophecy, and he continues to empower his church, and believers in particular, today. After all, Jesus said that his church would do "greater things" than he did once he ascended.
Of course, people often substitute the real deal of God's power lesser, false forms of pseudo-power, like intellect, physical strength, or material resources. But God offers us power from above...power that restores and recreates the broken...power that does the miraculous.
Are you feeling the need for God's divine power? I know I am asking God daily for this kind of Kingdom experience. Will you listen to this message and respond to Holy Spirit's prompting? May God bless you as you do.
