June 2009 Newsletter: Pentecost - The Great Commission
Dear Friend of St. Athanasius Academy:
After the Lords Ascension, His eleven disciples returned to Jerusalem as instructed. On Pentecost, the Holy Spirit indwelt and sealed within these eleven disciples of Christ, His gift. But what was this gift. Perhaps Ezekiel 36:26-28 – Orthodox Study Bible – gives us a clue: "I shall give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I shall take the heart of stone from your flesh, and give you a heart of flesh. I shall put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes and you will keep my judgements and do them."
