49th Day of Mediation Thought by Sister Rhonda Cunningham
1st Corinthians 16:8
But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost
The word Ephesus means desirable.
Ephesus was a place of revival, strength, and fellowship. It was where many found their first love for Christ, so the fellowship was new and fresh
In this scripture, the Apostle Paul is speaking of the place in which he was at the time. He told them beforehand that he will remain at Ephesus until Pentecost. Pentecost is a Jewish festival occurring fifty days after the Passover.
Paul knew that while others presented themselves there to sacrifice according to the ritual of the law. He had another object in view.he knew it would be a larger assembly at that time, and he hoped that, in that way, an opportunity would be presented to him of spreading the gospel.
