Christ has died, Christ was raised, and Christ will come again we might add. And that’s tremendously good news for us because it means that we can finally be the people God desires us to be, so long as we stick near to the risen and living Jesus and let him go to work in us.

The first thing to notice about the Day of Pentecost then is that it is the fulfillment of God’s promise. Jesus promised that he and the Father would send the Holy Spirit so that the disciples would be empowered to bring the gospel to the whole world. A promise that Peter and the early Christians understood was rooted in the Old Testament.
Did you know that you can ask your heavenly Father to give you the Holy Spirit? And Jesus says if indeed you ask for the Holy Spirit you will receive him.
