Sermon Quotes on Pentecost

Welcome to the Season of Pentecost!

In this season most significantly focused on the Holy Spirit, I find Henry Chadwick’s words, whose beloved English translation of Augustine’s Confessions continues to capture the hearts of Christians around the globe, particularly insightful:

I owe everything to the gift of Pentecost. For fifty days the facts of the Gospel were complete, but no conversions were recorded. Pentecost registered three thousand souls. It is by fire that a holy passion is kindled in the soul whereby we live the life of God. The soul’s safety is in its heat. Truth without enthusiasm, morality without emotion, ritual without soul, make for a Church without power.
