The promise Jesus had made to His followers that they would receive the power of the Holy Spirit was fulfilled in the passage Acts 2:1-13. The Holy Spirit comes at Pentecost where they were gathered all together in one place and a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven to fill the whole house where they were sitting (v. 2).
The Holy Spirit came down from heaven with the sound like a mighty wind or a roar; tongues of fire separated and came to rest on each of them. They were empowered to speak in each person’s native language and witness to the whole world about the wonders of God.
God wants every person to hear the Gospel message in their own language. Ask yourself what part you can play to be an effective witness for Christ. There are so many opportunities with technology today to read about thoughts from others thousands of miles away and interact with them on-line.
This day with You Father, we read about the promise of the Holy Spirit which was fulfilled. With this helper, the early church grew fast as they boldly told others about Jesus. This same power which makes everything possible is available to us today. As we pray today, we ask that we find ways to play our part as an effective witness for Christ. May we see this unfold before us as we decide each step to take and gain momentum throughout the day. Amen!
