Bible Story- Our last Bible Story of the year takes place back in Jerusalem. Jesus had ascended back into heaven 10 days ago. The disciples were waiting for the Counselor he had promised. Many disciples were gathered together in one place when a sound like a roaring wind came and tongues of fire came to rest on each head. Those gathered were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages. Many people from all over the world were gathered in Jerusalem for a festival and they heard the noise also and gathered around the building where the believers were. The believers came out and spoke to them and each heard the good news of Jesus and marvelous things of God in their own languages! Peter spoke to the crowd and using Old Testament prophecies and eyewitness accounts of Jesus, he told the crowd what was happening and how Jesus had been killed for their sins, but rose again to life! This cut many in the crowd to the heart and they wondered what to do! Peter told them to repent and be baptized. Over 2000 people became believers that day alone! What a miracle! Sometimes we wonder why we can't do the same thing today. The Word of God doesn't appear to have the same effect on people, to cut them to the heart. Today it just seems to make them angry or defensive. The Word of God works- speaking the truth in love will always have an impact, sometimes we aren't there to see it, but we continue to love God and love our neighbor. May God give us the Holy Spirit to speak with passion and love about Him!
