Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he told his disciples they would “be baptized by the Holy Spirit not many days from now” (Acts 1:4, 5). Something significant was going to happen to them.
What, they weren’t sure.
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were met by the sound of rushing wind, and tongues of fire. The sound brought Jerusalem to life. People hurried to the place where the disciples had gathered wondering. What is this strange thing that is happening?
Peter offered the words of the prophet Joel–the long awaited gift of God’s Spirit had come. God had a new dwelling place on earth–the hearts of men.
Which means, the day you believed the good news, God found a home in you.
