Who? Me?

All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in other languages,
as the Spirit gave them ability.

Acts 2:4

Pentecost is often referred to as the birth of the church. Before ascending into heaven, Jesus instructed his disciples to remain in Jerusalem where they will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon them. But Jerusalem was just the starting point. From there Jesus said that they will be his witnesses spreading into Judea and Samaria, and from there to the ends of the earth.

This is a big step for a group of previously fairly ordinary fishermen, tax collectors, and other common people. They had followed Jesus for three years as his disciples, but having received the Holy Spirit, Jesus sends them out to continue his work of the kingdom of God.

Our knowing about Jesus is a testimony to the Holy Spirit empowering ordinary people over the centuries to do God's extraordinary work.

God's purpose for each of us is to live and speak the message of Jesus, not to sit in a pew. There are no Christians on the sidelines.

Scripture: Acts 2:1-13
