En el campo feliz de la unión;
Con ardientes fulgores de gloria
Se ilumina la nueva nación!
Del pasado el calvario y la cruz;
Y que adorne el azul de tu cielo
De concordia la espléndida luz.
Al compás de sublime canción,
Ves rugir a tus pies ambos mares
Que dan rumbo a tu noble misión.
A los besos del tibio terral,
Terminaron guerreros fragores;
Sólo reina el amor fraternal.
Adelante la pica y la pala,
Al trabajo sin más dilación,
Y seremos así prez y gala
De este mundo feraz de Colón.
The Day of Pentecost marked a turning point in the early Christian church. Pentecost, is Jewish feast, was celebrated 50 days after Passover, and pilgrims had come to Jerusalem from all over the world to celebrate the event.
Before his ascension into heaven, Jesus had promised his disciples that he would send the Holy Spirit to give them strength and wisdom to spread the gospel throughout the world. (See Acts 1:8).
The apostles’ ability to address these foreign visitors in their own languages was a miracle from God. After they were filled with the Holy Spirit, the 12 did many other miracles and wondrous signs. So right from the start of the church, we see that God intended His offer of salvation to extend to all the nations of this world we live in. Therefore, whoever calls on the name of Jesus, repents, and believes in Him will be saved and that is the blessed hope of His salvation. Today, believers in Jesus are filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. We cannot live the Christian life without His help. We are to call on Him whenever we need strength or guidance.
