The Day of Pentecost
This Sunday I will be preaching from Acts 2.1-21. This is the story of the Holy Spirit coming on the disciples and they speak in tongues of other languages. When the people of Jerusalem see and hear this they respond by asking: "What does this mean?" There has to be an interpretation of this event. So then Peter stands and tells everyone that they are not drunk [because it is too early to be drunk (verse 15)]. He then quotes from the book of Joel and then goes into a sermon telling about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. I love the question: "What does this mean?" Many of us want to ask that same question. What do you think it means?
