Saint Paul's Lutheran Church of Irvine

Here Comes Pentecost!


This coming Sunday is the Day of Pentecost! This was the original church event when God poured out The Holy Spirit upon the Holy Church, the Body of Christ. We remain in His gracious gift of our True God, the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, the Counselor, the Mighty Ruach of God through Word and Sacrament, rejoicing that in our Holy Baptism into Christ Jesus, the gift of the Holy Spirit was given to us and through the constant receiving of the Word and Sacrament, we are perpetually filled with the Spirit of God. You will notice the red paraments this Sunday signifying the tongues of fire that were over the heads of the original disciples at Pentecost. That holy fire still burns as we believe, teach, and confess the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to all nations. We rejoice in this 50th day after the Resurrection and the fulfillment of the words of the Lord Jesus Christ given to the first disciples: "But stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high." (Luke 24:49b) Come here my proclamation on John 7:37-39b and learn why the Holy Spirit is our Living Water. In Christ, Pastor Espinosa
