Playing with Fire

Passage: Acts 2:1-21,1 Corinthians 12:3-13,John 7:37-39

Today is the Day of Pentecost—the birthday of the Christian Church. A more descriptive name for it might be the Festival Day of the Holy Spirit. The first Pentecost was a dramatic occasion filled with the fury of wind and burning flames. Jesus’ disciples were transformed from timidity and fear to bold, commissioned proclaimers of the Gospel. On this momentous day, the Spirit of God is unleashed upon the church to ignite faith and sanctify lives.
