As we enter into the month of June, we find Easter season coming to a close and the beginning of the "green" part of the church year. During this "non-festival" section we hear readings selected from Christ's teaching and preaching directed toward the disciples. Before this occurs focus on the Day of Pentecost in which the Helper Jesus has promised is given to the disciples and the church to help sustain them their faith and preach that true faith to all nations.

John 7:37-39 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, "If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water'". Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Christ is glorified when He is raised up on the cross and when He is raised up from the grave. Those who believe in Him, has the Spirit been given. The Holy Spirit preaches Christ and keeps all those in faith gathered together. This is why we see the Spirit come down to the apostles, giving them the ability to speak in tongues of all languages. The tower of Babel has been reversed and there is now only one true language to be spoken of by the people of this land, the Gospel.

Christ has come and fulfilled all that must be, in order that we may have the living water which flows from His heart, giving life everlasting to all who are in Him. Now we begin this section of the church year with Pentecost, the Spirit coming to the church, followed with teachings from Christ how the Christian life is to be lived. All has been fulfilled and the Lord resides with us through His Spirit. Let us speak one language, the Gospel of Christ, as we live in one accord with all who believe and receive the Spirit through the Word, the works, the life, and the deeds of Christ given to us in baptism and Scripture.
