God Makes The Difference In Us (Acts 2:1-6)

Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

It was less than two months since Jesus warned Peter that he was going to deny Him. Peter had
told Jesus, “‘Even if I have to die with You, I will never disown You.’ And” the Bible adds, “all
the other disciples said the same” (Mt. 26:35). Later on, just as Jesus had said he would, Peter
ended up denying Him three times (Mt. 26:69-75). All the other disciples were afraid to stand up
for Jesus as well. After Jesus was crucified, and before the disciples knew that He had risen from
the dead, they were in a room with the doors locked. They were afraid that since the Jewish
leaders had Jesus crucified, they would persecute them and possibly put them to death, too. (Jn.
20:19)

Acts 2:1-6

2:1 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. (ESV)
