Pentecost, although not in Jewish custom nor records of the Old Testament, is the identifier within the church as the start of the Spirit of God baptizing the people of God. Because of instruction within the church, I thought Pentecost was a one-day observance, but I am challenging my thinking as I dig into the Word of God for strength and wisdom, discovering God every day on my own accord. Pentecost is more than just a day of observance and remembrance of what God has done, what he has gifted us. Pentecost is a way of living, a way of discovering.
The Spirit of God, being one with God the Father and God the Son, knows all of the intricacies of God - the profound things of God. The Spirit of God within my being, calls out to God in a tongue my mortal mind cannot comprehend or explain in my native language. And as I commune with God; as I search for him more, he reveals the depths of who he is to me.
In the second verse of the twenty-fifth chapter of Proverbs the writer states, "it is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out." The gravitas of our discovering him in more inmate and profound ways brings us understanding, yes, but there is always more to seek out - more to learn. God is infinite, and it is the sheer joy and pleasure of his being to conceal things from us for us to find them on our own. The day of Pentecost in the upper-room is the hinge upon which our ability to have the depths of the Spirit of God revealed to us rests.
Walk boldly in a life of Pentecost; in a life of knowing on a personal level Joy of Law fulfilled. This is your promise that God the Son would send a gift to you to help you and comfort you.
