This past weekend at Eastbrook, we celebrated Pentecost as I preached a message entitled, “Waiting for the Holy Spirit.” This message was based on Acts 2:1-12.
You can find the message outline and video below. You can access the entire series here. Join us for weekend worship in-person or remotely via Eastbrook at Home.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (Acts 2:1-4)
What Is Pentecost?
God’s Promise Fulfilled (Joel 2:28; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-5, 7-8; 2:4)
The Gift of God’s Presence Signified in Wind and Fire (Exodus 19:16-19; Acts 2:2-3)
An Echo of Jesus’ Commissioning (Luke 3:21-22; Acts 1:14; 2:1)
A Picture of God Gathering in the Nations (Leviticus 23:15-16; Acts 2:1, 5-12)
What Does Pentecost Mean for Us Today?
Presence of God
Power of God
Purpose of God
Waiting for the Holy Spirit
This week dig deeper in one or more of the following ways:
- Memorize Acts 2:1-4 or John 14:26
- Draw, ink, or paint the dramatic Pentecost day recorded in Acts 2:1-13. As you do that, let God speak to you about who the Holy Spirit is and what that means for you. When you finish, consider sharing your prayer reflections and/or artistry with a friend.
- Watch The Bible Project video “Pentecost: Acts 1-7”
- Read a book about the Holy Spirit, such as I Believe in the Holy Spirit by Michael Green or Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala
