Pentecost Sunday

As the people of God assemble on Pentecost Sunday, may they hear afresh their Lord as He charges His followers: “He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised,” (Acts 1:4) “And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost” (John 20:22) and then Apostle Paul throws in: “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;” (Eph 5:18). The tense used in the original language actually reads: “BE YE BEING FILLED WITH THE SPIRIT”. In other words, there is to be an ongoing filling or a series of fillings.
