"And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place" (Acts 2:1)

Truly, the upper room marked the beginning of the New Testament Church. It was also the beginning of the kingdom of Christ in its operational sense, it was when the Holy Spirit started to reign over his kingdom. It was, in reality, the beginning of the entire Christian system.

So, is the 21st Century Christian Church following the example of the early church. In other words, are we, as follows of Christ, still in one accord? Do we believe in the "Full Gospel", as given in 1 Corinthians 15?

"Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached to unto you, which also you have received, and wherein you stand" (1 Corinthians 15:1)

"For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also revived, how that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"(1 Corinthians 15:3-4)

Sometimes we find ourselves doubting God's love, feeling all alone without God and wondering if God really cares about our situations. However, this is where the Holy Spirit comes into play in our lives.

"The spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are Gods children. Now if we are children then we are heirs-heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if needed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory" (Romans 8:16-17)

So, just keep trusting God, through His Holy Spirit and keep looking up for our redemption draws nigh.

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future'. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Come Holy Spirit,
Like a mighty rushing wind, on my life now descend
Come Holy Spirit,
Fiery cloven tongues I pray, be placed on me today
Come Holy Spirit,
Show what I ought to be, from all evil help me flee
Come Holy Spirit,
Keep me hallowed day by day, with your will not to stray
Come Holy Spirit
Freely speak to one and all, who by faith receive the call
Come Holy Spirit
Always to be of one accord, as we worship our Dear Lord
Come Holy Spirit,
As we wait for Your withdraw, and we answer Heavens call
Come Holy Spirit
