With this sermon our study of Acts brings us to one of the most important single chapters in all of our New Testament. In Acts 2 we see the birth of the church. Jesus had instructed his followers to wait for the promise of the Father, and in this chapter the Father delivers. This promised gift is His Holy Spirit. He comes on this group of over 100 believers with a great noise, visible fire and miraculous languages. A crowd gathers and the church is born and grows. This promise of power fueled the testimony of these followers of Christ, and the Holy Spirit continues to do the same thing with us today.
