“The more one examines the various factors which seem to account for the extraordinary victory of Christianity, the more one is driven to search for a cause underlying them all. It is clear that at the very beginning of Christianity there must have occurred a vast release of energy virtually unequalled in history. Without it, the future course of this religion is inexplicable. Why this occurred may lie outside the realm in which modern historians are supposed to move.”
- Acts 2:4 – “Filled with the Spirit”
- Acts 2:17 – “Pour out my Spirit”
- Acts 2:47 – “The Lord added to their number”
God is in their midst! God is doing something! The Spirit is on the move! “The cause underlying them all” is the Holy Spirit. That same Spirit lives in us today! We are a part of this remarkable story that God has been writing throughout history by His Holy Spirit.
