No Ordinary Sunday

Around the world, next Sunday is just an ordinary Sunday but In the Christian Church calendar, next Sunday is Pentecost. 

Pentecost celebrates the occasion of the Holy Spirit first descending upon Christ’s disciples. It is also the last day of the Easter season—meaning it falls on the fiftieth day after Easter. Pentecost is also proclaimed as the birth of the church. 

I believe church isn’t just the thing we do for an hour and a bit on Sunday but something we are every day of the week. We, the Church, are the bride of Christ and we represent him in our families, our communities and our workplaces.  

I also reckon we need to keep meeting together because that is the time when we hear the word of God explained to us, we get to thank Jesus for being with us in the past week, and we have the opportunity to encourage each other as we walk with Jesus in the coming week.  And when we walk with Jesus, we have his power and wisdom as we take his love to those who are hurting, those who need forgiveness and to those who are without hope.

But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth.  Acts 1:8
