This Changes Everything

Sermon Series:Acts

REFRAMING THE HOUSE: THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING ACTS 2:1-41 In the second chapter of Acts, Luke records the amazing events of Pentecost. The day began with the outpouring of the Spirit on the Apostles and the larger group of 120 Jesus followers. The sound of rushing wind, tongues of fire, and tongues of language engaged the imaginations of thousands gathered in Jerusalem, prompting the question, “What does this mean?” or “What will become of this?” In response, the Holy Spirit gave Peter boldness to engage their minds through a sermon showing how Jesus is the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy; He is the Messiah. Finally, the Holy Spirit convicted and engaged their hearts, provoking the question, “What do we do?” And leading to the birth of the church when 3000 repented and were baptized. The question “What will become of this?” is still in play as Jesus continues to build His Kingdom and the Spirit continues to move in and through His people. What is our response? What is the Spirit continuing to do in our midst? How are we positioned to bring the Gospel in the languages of the nations? The culture? The campus?
