(1-13) The Coming of the Holy Spirit
Before Jesus the Christ left His apostles, He promised that the Holy Spirit would be sent to them. He told them to wait for it, and they were obedient, and waited in prayer for the Spirit to arrive. Because the apostles believed the promise of Christ, they were used by God to do mighty works for Him. God also wants to use us to do great things for Him through the power of the Holy Spirit. We must believe the promises found in Scripture, and receive the Spirit with a prayerful attitude and a faith-filled heart.
(14-21) Peter’s Sermon at Pentecost
