The new Airbus and Dreamliner airplanes need a mighty wind to lift them into the skies.
These air monsters can hold up to 853 passengers and weigh 1.2 million pounds. The 460 ton Airbus needs to be rolling down the runway at 170 miles per hour before the pilot lifts the nose and lets her climb into the sky. It is amazing that all of that weight can rise up on the crest of the winds and fly. The engines roar, with their tongues of fire at work.
Lifting our church into existence at Pentecost required a similar mighty wind. This heaven sent power of roaring wind descended upon the disciples, while tongues of fire lashed down from the skies.
