Good morning to you.
"When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them." (Acts 2:1-4)
What is striking about this account of the Disciples being filled with the Holy Spirit is that they were all together. They were being faithful to Jesus' instruction to stay in Jerusalem. When they filled with Holy Spirit, Peter stood up and boldly proclaimed Jesus Christ to the crowd that had gathered.
This account of the Pentecost experience the disciples had that day can be summarized like this:- The faithful were filled and empowered.
As we count down to Pentecost 2021, let us remain faithful to Him who gives the Spirit, liberally, to all who ask and who daily empowers us.
Have a good day.
