The Holy Spirit Book: Pentecost; Holy Spirit, Come!
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Over 2,000 years ago, the promise God made to Jesus’ followers was fulfilled on Pentecost. The Holy Spirit came upon them and filled them with His power.
“On the day of Pentecost, seven weeks after Jesus’ resurrection, the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm in the skies above them, and it filled the house where they were meeting. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:1-2, 4
The person, the purpose, and the power of the Holy Spirit is a promise God made to all believers.
“Peter 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. This promise is to you, to your children, and to those far away--all who have been called by the Lord our God.” Acts 2:39
If you have never received the baptism with the Holy Spirit, simply pray the following prayer from The Holy Spirit Book. Let today be your personal Pentecost. Holy Spirit, come!
Lord, how needy I am and how gracious and abundant You are in Your grace and provision for me. How thankful I am that I can continue to have more of You.
Thank you for fulfilling Your promise of the Holy Spirit and for all the ways He has come to minister to me and work through me. I am thankful for His presence and His power, and that You sent Him to be with me, to be in me, and to come upon me.
Holy Spirit, I want to receive Your complete ministry in my life.
