Pentecost is the festival that commemorates the coming of the Holy Spirit to Earth.
While Jesus had conquered death through his resurrection, he could have stayed on earth with his disciples. But He preferred to go back to God the Father to multiply, and bring about, his kingdom through his disciples in every generation, sending them his Spirit of life and power to equip them for this task.
Jesus said in the Injil John 16: 7”But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counsellor will not come to you but if I go, I will send him to you.”
Pentecost is a festival that recalls the coming of the Holy Spirit to Earth; he comes to live in those who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. Through him, God lives in us by his own Spirit.
Here is a wonderful passage we can find in the Injil, Romans 8:15“The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
Is this not extraordinary news?!
Question :How can I receive the Holy Spirit in my life?
