The Bible of the Church

May 23rd, 2012

Acts 2:1-13RG AUDIO 052312

The birth of the church on the day of Pentecost was an important event for the people of God. They obediently waited in prayer in an upper room for the next step in their journey in life. Little did they realize how much was going to change, not only for them, but in the coming centuries for those who would also place their faith in Christ. The challenges seemed insurmountable: persecution, hatred, imprisonment, and even death. God understood that they would need someone to galvanize their faith. That someone was the Holy Spirit–the Third Person of the Triune Godhead.

The Holy Spirit was sent to be present with Christ’s Church and to sustain its existence. He grows the Church by convincing the world of sin, granting new life to those who believe and repent, sanctifying believers, and guiding us into all truth in Jesus Christ.

Being alive in Spirit means being alive unto God!
