JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

PENTECOST SUNDAY
20th May 2018

The warm breath of Jesus envelopes the apostles in the upper room, and never dissipates; they become a new creation, breathing that Spirit in every word they utter in the name of Jesus. John’s Easter/Pentecost account is complemented by Luke’s account, when the disciples “heard the sound of a mighty wind from heaven, the noise of which filled the house”. In John the breath is felt; in Luke the wind is only heard, and they saw what “seemed to be” tongues of fire. Here is human language struggling to convey an experience beyond words, gentle but effective, powerful but not violent, transformingly beautiful and irresistible.

While the experience defies description, the consequences, beginning with the remaining chapters of the Acts of the Apostles and continuing to the present day, come tumbling over each other in rich profusion, grace upon grace. If as a Church we have lost that memory of our founding Pentecostal experience, we need to reinvoke it, re-live it, rediscover it. If we have let the flame grow dim from weariness and cynicism, we need that warm Breath of Jesus to rekindle it.

Let us return this year to that upper room in Jerusalem, the “city of peace” beset today with bloodshed, division, anger, injustice and shattered dreams. Let us be united in prayer as we courageously open the doors to the sound of gunfire and screaming, to intolerance and ridicule, to the desperate longing for peace and healing and understanding. Let us walk out into the world to share the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, trustfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5). The world will think we are mad, stupid and (as at the first Pentecost) “under the influence”. Well, aren’t we?

Come, Holy Spirit!

John
