Absorbing God Word

“Brothers, what shall we do?” Peter replied, “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.” Acts 2: 37-38

Applying God’s Word

I’ve lived through a bunch of Pentecost Sunday’s without asking God for His forgiveness. I’ve lived through a bunch more without receiving the gift of His Holy Spirit. When I did acknowledge my sins before God and asked for His forgiveness, nothing seemed to change. Nothing changed because there was a lack of sincerity on my part.

Surrendering has never come easy for me. What finally penetrated my heart was a realization that Jesus is, in fact, the Son of God and that He died for me. God knew all my sins; He was just waiting for me to sincerely ask Him to forgive them. As soon as I did, the gift of the Holy Spirit became manifest in my life. For the first time ever, the words in the Bible spoke to me personally. The rest as they say, “Is History.”

Louise and I have been praying for you to have an extraordinary Pentecost, a miraculous Pentecost.

Accounting of God’s Word

Have I sincerely asked God for His forgiveness? Do I want the gift of His Holy Spirit?
