Today is Pentecost. It is the day we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit into the hearts of believers. Jesus has returned to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, and this day marks the fulfillment of His promise to send the Counselor to give wisdom, comfort, and strength.
Peter and the others gathered in the house
Enter in the violent wind
Noise like they had never heard
Tongues of fire come to rest on everyone
Enter in the Holy spirit
Common faith connects them now
Over centuries we are connected, too
Sweet Jesus the Savior of us all
Truth resides in our hearts
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues
as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:1-4 (NIV).
