The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and they were speaking in tongues. Many said they were drunk but Peter gives an answer for their actions as stated in the passage Acts 2:14-36. He explains that this was spoken about by the prophet Joel: In the last days, God said He would pour out His Spirit on all people so they would have visions, dreams, and they will prophesy. There would also be wonders in the heavens and on earth.
As Peter does in this passage, let us go to God’s Word as the source when there are people that do not understand that God became flesh on earth as Jesus and performed wonders, signs, and miracles. He died on the cross at the hands of those who misunderstood God’s plan. Then God raised Him from the dead and today, those who accept Him as Savior also receive freedom from deaths grip.
The risen, ascended, and active Christ makes a big difference in our daily living because we no longer just live for today but also look forward to the many glorious days into the future. We are filled with joy and live in hope as we understand that the Lord is always in our presence.
Our weight of burdens only makes us stronger because these burdens make our growing faith even stronger. Frustration on earth is turned to joy because of the hope of our heavenly tomorrows.
