People of the World Hear the Gospel!
Hello! Hola! Aloha! Hallo! Bonjour! Kinnichiwa!
Acts 2:4-6 New International Version (NIV)
4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken.
Tuesday - June 2 - Read Acts 2:4-6
The feast of Pentecost was such a major Jewish festival that faithful Jews
from all over the world would pilgrimage to worship at the Temple in
Jerusalem. While the Holy Spirit does many wonderful and amazing things,
in this story we see that the Holy Spirit also wants other people to know
about Jesus. This dramatic scene of rushing wind and flames on people’s
heads has a purpose. The Holy Spirit fills the disciples of Jesus and leads
them to preach the Gospel! The Holy Spirit works in us and through us to
bring the message of Jesus Christ to others. Obviously this happens at
church, but the Holy Spirit uses you at home, at work, at school, etc. The
experience might not be dramatic like this, but God is using you.
