“When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each of them . And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2: 1-4
The day of Pentecost was the fulfillment of the Promise from the Father. Think about all the things that God could of promised for the followers of Jesus, but He sent the Holy Spirit! Why? Because the Spirit was going to come and live in and empower them to live for Christ and to carry on His a Ministry to a lost world!
We need the Holy Spirit in our lives, families, church if we are going to live His life in this world, and to do the works of Jesus in our world today!
Being filled with the Spirit is more than praying in tongues, but it is living like Jesus and being used by His Spirit! If we are going to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth, then we need to be filled every day with the Holy Spirit!
Our responsibility is to hunger and thirst for more of His presence in our lives and then we will be filled!
My prayer today is: Lord fill me with Your Spirit! “It is not by might, not by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord.”
