The Holy Spirit Blew in Like a Flame


Acts 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.


Monday - June 1 - Read Acts 2:1-3

Each year there were three big Jewish festivals that many people traveled to

Jerusalem for: Tabernacles, Passover and Pentecost. The followers of Jesus

had been with him in Jerusalem for the Passover festival and are back now

for the Pentecost feast. Jesus has risen into heaven and they are waiting for

the gift that he has promised: the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5). Just like the

resurrection was a fulfillment of God’s promises, the gift of the Holy Spirit is

another example of God’s faithfulness. That was the first time the Holy Spirit

was “poured out.” Now we receive the Holy Spirit when we are baptized! It

might not have been as dramatic, but it was just as special. God’s Spirit is

with you because he loves you and has promised to be with you.
