OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional, 28th Of May 2023
TOPIC: What Only the Spirit Can Do
TEXT: All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:4
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Acts 2:1–13
BIBLE IN A YEAR: 2 Chronicles 4–6, John 10:24–42
Moltmann highlighted our mistaken belief that our energy and expertise make things happen. Acts reveals that God makes things happen. At the start of the church, it had nothing to do with human strategy or impressive leadership. Rather, the Spirit arrived “like the blowing of a violent wind” into a room of frightened, helpless, and bewildered disciples (2:2). Next, the Spirit shattered all ethnic superiorities by gathering people who were at odds into one new community. The disciples were as shocked as anyone to see what God was doing within them. They didn’t make anything happen; “the Spirit enabled them” (v. 4).
The church—and our shared work in the world—isn’t defined by what we can do. We’re entirely dependent on what only the Spirit can do. This allows us to be both bold and restful. On this day—the day we celebrate Pentecost—may we wait for the Spirit and respond.
REFLECT & PRAY:-
How are you tempted to rely on your own efforts or tenacity? Where do you need to wait for what the Spirit can do?
God, I’ve exhausted myself by believing that I must make things happen. Holy Spirit, come and help me.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
