Read Acts 19:1-7


Read Acts 19:1-7

While Apollos was in Corinth, Paul travelled through the interior of the province and arrived in Ephesus. There he found some disciples 2and asked them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?”
“We have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit,” they answered.
3 “Well, then, what kind of baptism did you receive?” Paul asked.
“The baptism of John,” they answered.
4 Paul said, “The baptism of John was for those who turned from their sins; and he told the people of Israel to believe in the one who was coming after him—that is, in Jesus.”
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6Paul placed his hands on them, and the Holy Spirit came upon them; they spoke in strange tongues and also proclaimed God’s message. 7They were about twelve men in all.

Think

When the Ephesians received the Holy Spirit the fruit of it was that they 'spoke in strange tongues and proclaimed God's message.'  They prophesied.
How do you feel about that?

Pray

Lord, I want your spirit to guide me as I speak your message in ways that surprise me.


19.4: Mt 3:11; Mk 1:4, 7, 8; Lk 3:4, 16; Jn 26:27
