We have begun that part of the Church Year called the Season of Pentecost. It began this year on May 25, the fiftieth day after Easter. Pentecost is all about the expansion of the Church and its growth in faith, both of which are totally the work of the Holy Spirit. On the night when He was betrayed, Jesus had reminded the disciples of His imminent return to Heaven, and He promised to send them the Holy Spirit in His absence. He had said, “It is to your advantage that I go away, for then I will send you the Holy Spirit who will lead you into the Truth and be your Comforter.” Now the day had come for Jesus to fulfill His promise—the day of Pentecost.
