Have you ever heard the song ‘There is a Redeemer’ by Keith Green? Being an 80’s child, I had the privilege of listening to Keith Green’s music as Mum used to play his songs (loudly) every Sunday morning! ‘There is a Redeemer’ was one that I would often hum during the day after hearing it in the morning. Today is a special day in the Christian calendar. It is Pentecost Sunday and as I began to reflect on the significance of this day I was reminded of this song. Part of the lyrics say “Thank you Oh my Father for giving us your Son, and leaving Your Spirit Here ‘til the work on Earth is done”.
Every year on Pentecost Sunday we remember God’s gift of the Holy Spirit given to us; His power available and living in us! We read in Acts 2:1-3 “When the day of the Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.”
