10 May: Pentecost Prep

In 2 weeks, we will celebrate one of the most important and yet underrated holy days in our calendar…Pentecost.  Though originally this was a celebration of the giving of the law on Mt. Sinai (which happened 50 days after Passover when the Israelites left Egypt), we now celebrate it as the giving of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2), who is the fulfillment of the law.  He is the law “written on our hearts” (Heb. 2:15) who guides us and molds in conformity with the image of the Son of God (Rom. 8:29).

01 Jun: The Fullness of God

As crazy as the Pentecost seemed to be with its sudden-ness, the violent winds, and the tongues of fire, it actually was more so a revelation on the orderliness of God. To understand this order, we must first get familiar with the significance of the number “7” in our faith. Long story short, God completed the creation the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th day, declaring that day as a day of rest, blessing that day, and calling it holy (Genesis 2:1-3).
