The reason we dive into Acts even more clearly is due to the fact that as we have been diving into scripture through Philippians and then had baptisms, we see that God at work is through the Holy Spirit. It’s his Grace in action and His Spirit within us that makes His kingdom continue forward!
Just this last few weeks, I have mentioned the scripture
Acts 2:38 NLT
38Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Now obviously this pertains to being baptized, but the verse ends with… “then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!”
Now, the Holy Spirit is not a bird. He is the 3rd person of the trinity and he dwells in us as Christ followers. But before I get ahead of myself… let’s pray, then jump into the word.
