This morning as I was running, I couldn’t help but reflect on Pentecost. The sky was just beginning to grow lighter and the stars were just a bit dimmer. The birds were beginning to wake and the world was still around me. It was just like any other morning that I run. Then I began to wonder about the Apostles on that first Pentecost. Did their day start out normal? Did they know anything was going to happen? Did they know their world would never, ever be the same after that day?
But nothing, not even my life, is more important than my completing my mission. This is nothing other than the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus: to testify about the good news of God’s grace. -Acts 20:24 (CEB)
I wonder about our day today. Is it going to be different than other days? Is it going to be a day filled with wonder? Or maybe changes? Are we ready? Just some thoughts from my run this morning.
