God is re-creating the People of God on Pentecost; God is creating the Church on Pentecost. God spoke the language we ALL (nations/people) can understand first – in Jesus Christ (by example) and second in native languages. The language of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is love primarily… embracing ALL (no walls/difference anymore), we are one in Christ. It is God through the Holy Spirit that speaks through us (in spite of our imperfection). We are invited to join God’s Spirit in God’s work. We are called to make disciples by speaking the language of God = “Gospelish”… always.
