Fire | Pentecost 2020
Silence and stillness before God (2 minutes)
Reading: Ephesians 5:18, Acts 2: Acts 4
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit
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.4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a]as the Spirit enabled them.
31After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. 32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. 33 With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all 34 that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales 35 and put it at the apostles’ feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need.
36 Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas (which means “son of encouragement”), 37 sold a field he owned and brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.
Holy Spirit, come. Jesus, thank You for Your Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit fill me. Help me to do life in Your power not my own for Your glory. Fill me Lord again and again. In Jesus' name, amen.
