After Israel was freed from slavery under the Egyptian sons of Ham (Ps 78:51),
God brought them first to Mount Sinai and gave them his royal laws on the
day of Pentecost, which made their freedom complete (Ex 19 & 20).
This royal law for the free was also later to be written on men’s hearts by
God’s Holy Spirit on the same day of Pentecost (Acts 2, Jer 31:31-34, Heb 10:16-17)!
As we begin obeying God, He gives us His Holy Spirit (Acts 5:32).
With the help of God’s Spirit, we can begin to obey God more fully and to
grow in understanding (2 Tim 1:6-7, 1 Cor 2:10-13). As we follow God’s
Spirit, we become His sons (Rom 8:14). This is the same Holy Spirit or
Holy Seed that impregnated Mary and filled the life of our Savior.
Pentecost is so rich and abundant with meaning that this brief summary does
not do it justice. But suffice to say here, Pentecost is truly a fitting reflection
of our Lord’s Body and like a bar of truly refined gold, its’ worth is immense.
