Why We Celebrate
“Why We Celebrate”
Pentecost is often viewed as the “birthday of the Church”. This was the time when the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles in a mighty way with fire one their heads and a message that was understood by all. Over 3000 people were brought to faith in Jesus Christ is one day!
It goes back to another time. A time of harvest where the people celebrated the Feast of Weeks. (Now that would be a great celebration!!!) Pentecost is deeply rooted in harvest and the harvest we are talking about is that of souls being added to the kingdom of the Lord.
In our world today, even the Christian world, the Church is often equated with an institution. This is really not a great connection. A call to celebrate the birthday of an institution makes me want to yawn … sometimes. Celebrating the birthday of a great harvest event that has seen many people believe in the Lord Jesus is entirely different.
That kind of harvest is exactly why we celebrate Pentecost.
The Church celebrates this harvest of Pentecost as it proclaims God’s Word, administers the Sacraments, and serves the Lord Jesus Christ who made all of this possible through the power of His Holy Spirit.
God’s Word fuels this excitement and passion for the disconnected and hopeless. This is why the Church exists, has a purpose, and can celebrate.
Harvest time in the Lord, Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost, we celebrate the marvelous working of the Lord in changing lives through the power of the Spirit.
Let the party begin!
