The miracle of Pentecost is like that. God prepares spiritual power to flow into creation, but no inspiration will take place if the circuit is not completed. We need to position ourselves in such a way that the connection is made. Had the Jesus-followers not been “all together in one place,” ready for something miraculous to happen, there would have been no miracle, at least not in that place and time. The first and essential action of a spiritual life is showing up, being open to the Spirit working in and through us.
- Acts 2:1-21
