When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability.

Acts 2:1-4


On the fiftieth day after the resurrection, that Holy Spirit descended and enlightened all that were present. The Holy Spirit is still present today in all. Residing in our hearts, pointing us to a direction that is Holy and right. We find the Spirit with us when we pray. Carefully helping us mold our prayers and opening our hearts to receive God’s response. The Sprit resides within us to help steer us away from dangerous steps in life that threaten to move us from God. Like the disciples of two thousand years ago, when we are fully with the Holy Spirit, we receive great understanding. One final Gift from the Risen Christ.

Points of Reflection

  • What dangerous things has the Spirit helped you avoid?
  • Pray each day this week with the Holy Spirit and list what changed.
  • What gifts have you received that are most important to you and why?

Blessings, until next time,
