Pentecost is an important and exciting event in the history of the church. Jesus promised to send the Holy Spirit, and that promise was fulfilled at Pentecost. We see God’s power evidenced and the gospel of Jesus spread to many. Pentecost is often called the “birthday” of the church, so this lesson uses elements of a birthday party to relate to the special day. Emphasis is heavy on the gift concept, relating to how we receive the Holy Spirit as a gift, not just on Pentecost but always.  

Before the saving work of Jesus, our salvation was dependent on following the law. Christ promised to fulfill that law and send the Holy Spirit to energize the church. The events of Pentecost assure and remind us that Jesus worked for us, spoke truth, and wants us to share His love with one another. He gave us the gift of His spirit to comfort and help us, and to build faith in us and in others. We should be encouraged and energized to share the Gospel and the love of God.
