Sermons about Pentecost
Pentecost is celebrated by Christians as the birthday of the Church by the power of the Holy Spirit. Since the Jewish Pentecost is the fiftieth day of Passover, the Christian Pentecost is the fiftieth day of Easter and the final day of the Easter season. Pentecost is the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on human flesh to give birth to the Church.
Every Sunday, as we proclaim together the words of the Nicene Creed, we affirm a belief in the three persons of the Holy Trinity: God the Father, the Lord Jesus, and "the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life..." Pentecost celebrates, in particular, the gift of the Holy Spirit to us. So what does it mean that the Holy Spirit is "the Lord, the giver of life"? Here Fr. Cameron explores what the Creed might have to teach us about the gift of the Holy Spirit, and the role that He plays in our lives.
We celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. This amazing gift that has the ability to give comfort and sustain us. But, the mystery of God can also be messy as it stretches and challenges us.
Pentecost Sunday and First Covenant Membership Sunday for Pinnacle Church
Today is the day that we remember that the Holy Spirit came to each to be inside anyone who trusts in Jesus. In the Old Testament Pentecost was called something else: The Feast of Harvest, but there was another holiday that was celebrated in the Old Testament called the Year of Jubilee. This was celebrated every 50 years. Jesus taught the people in a synagogue one day that He was the beginning of the last Jubilee! The Holy Spirit came down at Pentecost and thus continued on with the Jubilee, except it wasn't just Jesus that had the Holy Spirit, it was everyone who believed. Listen as Pastor Chris talks about The Harvest of Jubilee.
Pentecost-Gods Power Unleashed
What is the meaning of Pentecost? What is Pentecost about?
The feast of Pentecost is about the Holy Spirit. At St. Andrew's we are blessed with the example and leadership of the Rev. Jo Roberts Craig, who has been a priest here for fourteen years. This sermon looks at the scriptures of what happened at the first Pentecost, as told in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1-21), and then reflects personally on ways that Mother Jo has brought the Holy Spirit into the life of St. Andrew's.
