1/21/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 2:5-6 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in his own language.

As the Spirit of God descended upon the disciples, a crowd had gathered. They had witnessed the arrival of the Spirit. They had seen the Spirit break apart and come to rest upon the individual disciples, and now they heard something amazing. Each of these different groups of people, people that had come from all over to be in Jerusalem for the Day of Pentecost, a feast that was celebrated 50 days after Passover, heard these men speaking in their native languages. These were not special languages as some would say. These were languages that they did not know, languages they were not taught, languages they were able to speak because God granted them the ability. This ability was given so those present could understand exactly what was happening, so they could experience this wonderful miracle of God. Some people want to add to this situation to make it seem more Holy, to make their own personal lives seem more Holy. This is not right. This should not be done, for the Bible speaks clearly to this event. So if we distort it, we are distorting the message of God. We must keep the message intact and centered around the exact intentions of God. Otherwise, we should be worried about the day we stand before Him in judgment.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help the truth of Your Word forever remain the essence for my existence.
