Notes from Acts 2:1-13

These are my notes from Matt Mitchell’s sermon on May 16, 2011 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Lubbock, Texas. Matt started a sermon series on the Acts of the Apostles, using Acts 2:1-13

Acts 2:1
“When the Feast of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.”

Word rubah used for wind repeatedly in the Bible

“Galassia” is this experience of the disciples speaking their languages, but being heard by the people in attendance in their own language Repeatable themes in this text

1. The presence of the Spirit always brings regeneration and power

2. The church begins to take a more worldwide trajectory

3. We can have an intimate and supernatural existence with God through the Holy Spirit

This text is called the reversal of Babylon

There are still 6000 “people groups” who have not heard the name of Jesus

As Presbyterians we need to listen up and loosen up a bit, and listen for God in ways we are not always comfortable with

When the Spirit moves, it does not always have to make sense to us

Questions: Will we trust in God’s Spirit and follow Him?

We don’t do this work alone: this is good news!
