Pentecost – the Advocate

Today is Pentecost Sunday which is observed in many churches, while others ignore it altogether. This Sunday completes Easter, and is also called the Birthday of the Church.

Mary at the tomb completes the picture of Jesus and women. But the story does not end there. This is where you come in. This is how I can assure you that women are equal – No Buts.

Jesus promised an Advocate, the Holy Spirit. He told them to wait for the Holy Spirit.

Women, Jesus did not promise you a husband to lead you! He promised the Holy Spirit to lead you and advise you. Listen to what Jesus said.

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth.” John 14:16

Women, that Advocate is not your husband. It is the Holy Spirit. Jesus didn’t mention husbands, and why would he? Nowhere does Jesus tell women that they are to be ruled or lead by their husbands. In fact, these four women had no husbands leading them.
