Christmas, Easter, Pentecost: these three holidays are like midnight, dawn and noon. How’s that? Well, Christmas comes in the winter-time when everything is dark. The Epiphany Star is like a star at midnight, leading the Magi to the new-born infant Jesus. All of God is seen in the tiny baby in the manger…like beautiful, shining star at night.
Easter is like the dawn. The sun breaking out in the East is like Jesus rising from the grave. A new day has come with the Resurrection of Jesus. Pentecost is like noon-time. The fullness of God is poured out in the coming of the Holy Spirit, just as the noon sun is the highest and brightest…and hottest as the summer weeks draw near.
Pentecost is really the greatest holy day there is, because it’s the final gift of God to us—God’s Spirit living inside us. If you and I were to really get into living with God inside us and we inside God, what a life of love we would lead!
