Pentecost!


    Hello everyone! Yes, it is Sunday and today is a very special day. A day of reminiscence. Pentecost!



    Pentecost...which we remember today, has its roots in agricultural settings. Fifty days after Passover, Jewish farmers celebrated the feast of weeks. Lev. 23: 15-22. In which they recognized the hand of God who gave the crops.


     Pentecost historical farming connection reminds us that a world of lost souls is ready for harvest. John 4:35





    Today is also a reminder  to recognize the blessings that comes from God. 

    To thank Him for every good things. 


    To use the blessings that He gave us to bless each other. 


    To bear good fruit. To bring in a new harvest. 


     
    As believers we are God's farmers and should be bearing good fruits. 





     It is also a reminder to gather together...pray..and wait for God. 

    For His presence brings miracles and good harvest in our life.
    Happy Pentecost my friends!
