The Sunday Word
The disciples could never have imagined what was to come – or the astounding all that would unfold: the millions of lives that would be changed across thousands of years. How that moment of grace called Pentecost would come upon them like tongues of flame and ignite a revolution. The churches that would be built, the universities that would be erected, the hospitals and missions and charities that would fan across the world in the name of Christ the Lord.
We are a part of that.
But in those mysterious days before Pentecost, the disciples knew that their future was clouded with doubt and mystery.
As the disciples understood – sometimes the greatest hope is unseen. But trust in this: no matter how deep the darkness, the light we crave will come.
Wait for it.
Watch for it.
Pray for it.
The disciples in the upper room did.
And they ended up setting the world ablaze.
