“Pentecost” – Acts 2:1-21 – Pastor Larry Kassebaum

The day everything changed

Without the Holy Spirit, we’re a mess. With the Holy Spirit, we are messengers.

By the Holy Spirit’s power, the fearful became fearless!

Luke 24:49

Holy Spirit Power

The power available to every Christian is greater than fossil fuels or even nuclear energy.

The hearts of the disciples were set on fire with love for God and a burning desire to tell His story.

Acts 2:4

It’s all about God

We are called to rejoice in suffering for Jesus.

Pentecost reminds us that where there is a will, there’s a way!

Acts 2:17

5. What inspires you most about what the Holy Spirit did in/through the disciples on Pentecost? What would you like to see the Holy Spirit do in your life?
