Every day is Holy Spirit Day (Pentecost)

Pentecost was a Jewish feast day,
A religious holiday
Celebrated once a year,
But when God’s Spirit came
Pentecost became a way
Of living every single day
Overflowing from within
With God’s presence and power
While saying and doing
Whatever the Spirit does say.

May God melt
The chill
In Christian hearts
And give them
The endless thrill
Of the real
Holy Spirit!

Christianity is about
Following Jesus
Thru thick and thin
Until the end,
Not about settling in
And using Him
As an excuse
For camping and glamping.

The supernatural activity of “Christ in you” is much simpler than we imagine. Every day is Holy Spirit Day! Through the Holy Spirit we can endlessly breathe the breath of God and be animated by the life of God.

Christians tend to over-estimate the heroes of the Bible and under-estimate what Jesus wants to do in and through them, but God is no respecter of persons. His doors are now open to “Whosoever will.”

In the Bible, the Holy Spirit was practical. Now it seems that we mostly limit Him to the theological.

Pentecost is more than a historical, religious day to celebrate and remember and it’s more than a mere mindset. It’s a transformed heart passionately set on daily following and obeying the omnipresent, resurrected Jesus and endlessly overflowing with the power and desire to do so!

The Bible tells Christians to “Quench not the Spirit.” That means that God’s Spirit is going to live and work in us incessantly if we won’t hinder Him. Now that’s a great awakening–letting the Spirit lead and guide us unhindered by our self-will.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
