Pentecost is a time for all churches to celebrate two important realities The Holy Spirit and the Passover.
The day of Pentecost well known as the birth of church (Christianity)
. The purpose of Pentecost is to remind:
First: We need to lift up and celebrate the role and work of the Holy Spirit.
Second: We need to remember that we have been united, as the day of Pentecost God revealed his word to all race and language of the world . We Christian have Mis-interpreted the purpose of this gift to define we are united in race instead of united in Christ. How can the church be the salt of the world if it cannot reach out to people in there places and languages. John Wesley was able to reach out to people in their area of comfort and many people was converted to Christian.
The story of Peter and Cornelius shows that God poured out the Holy Spirit to both the Jews and the Gentiles.
