During this Easter, as we read to Chyella from our Jesus Storybook Bible, we were struck by the length of time between Jesus’ resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit. How many questions the disciples must have had!
After celebrating Easter morning, and hanging around for a while, Jesus left. Much like us now, the disciples sheltered in-place, waiting on something to change—waiting on God to move at Pentecost. It struck us how we have, in many ways globally, been brought back to such a moment.
So why don’t we, like them, focus on prayer? Until this year’s Pentecost on May 31, let’s return to what makes us a community together in Jesus, and ask to be empowered, waiting and listening. Who knows what may happen?
We’ve created a devotional for the month of May leading up to Pentecost (May 31). If you’d like to join us in reading, praying and listening together, please take our Pentecost Devotional.
For those of you who have already joined us through our April Update, follow us here to post your own insights and challenges. We’ve already been encouraged by your responses and would love to use this space to interact with and encourage one another during this month.
Love to you all!
