"Filled With the Holy Spirit!" (Acts 2:4)

See also

“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.”(Acts 2:4)

Shavuot is the Jewish celebration for the giving of the law. It precedes the Christian celebration of Pentecost. Shavuot commemorates the physical law, the Ten Commandments, that were given to Moses. Pentecost is when the Holy Spirit was given to believers. The believers gathered in Jerusalem after Jesus went to heaven and waited for the Gift. He came with tongues of fire, and the believers spoke with different tongues or languages.

Who is He, the Holy Spirit? He is the promised One. He is the believers’ Helper. He brings the words and teaching of Jesus to their remembrance. He is the power of God working in believers’ lives. He is also known as the Advocate and Counselor. He is at work to bring conviction about sin or doing wrong, righteousness or doing right, and justice. He is the Spirit of truth. He guides into all truth from God. He is sent as a deposit and seal of the believer’s inheritance of eternal life with God.

Believer, God has through His Son, Jesus, given the Holy Spirit without measure. He is your assurance that God will bring you into everlasting life.

Amen.
