Pentecost is a time when we remember how the power of God came upon ordinary people, turning them into bold witnesses for the extension of God’s Kingdom. Consider the Apostle Peter who once denied Christ and yet was so filled with the power of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost that he was able to lead 3,000 people to salvation. What a transformation!
“And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to Himself.” (Acts 2:38-39)
The enduring power of Pentecost
Through the centuries that have passed since the book of Acts, we have seen countless great men and women of God exemplify the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon their lives and the promise of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit continues to be fulfilled in the lives of believers today.
