Realizing the presence, promise, and power of the Kingdom of God.
Voices Together

Acts 10:44-48

“Even as Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who were listening to the message. The Jewish leaders who came with Peter were amazed that the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles, too. For they heard them speaking in tongues and praising God.
The Peter asked, ‘Can anyone object to their being baptized, now that they have received the Holy Spirit just as we did?’ So he gave orders for them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Afterward Cornelius asked him to stay with them for several days.”

And what did the assembled Gentiles hear? The answer is clearly given in Acts 2:5-12:

“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. And  they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking  Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and  Medes and  Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and   proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” And  all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?”

Brothers, what does that mean for today? In short, each of us must demand that our churches proclaim the true significance of Pentecost. The Gift of the Holy Spirit was not the pouring out of an unintelligible drivel but the mighty message that “Jesus save, we have heard the joyful sound, Jesus saves” to every tribe and people and tongue. It is a call to the mission fields.
