Acts: Life In The Spirit
Birthday of the Church
Acts 2:1-13

Today on the Church calendar it is known as Pentecost which is the “Birth of the Church.”

If we look in the past, before this day in Acts chapter 2, we will find a different sort of Pentecost celebration.

Pentecost was a time of celebration where people would feast and be thankful for what God had already given them and for the provision He would provide in the future.

It seems that for these Christians celebrating Pentecost together, it would soon take on a whole new meaning for they would be witnesses and participants to the birth of the Church.

We find that the Spirit came and allowed those who were there to speak in tongues. What an amazing miracle for the beginning of the church!

This day of Pentecost was really just the beginning for the church and there was much to look forward to.

The Holy Spirit provides us the environment needed to have a personal relationship with God.

As a result of Pentecost Present, we have the Holy Spirit with us now in Pentecost Future.
