Read Acts 10:44-48

44 While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit came down on all those who were listening to his message. 45 The Jewish believers who had come from Joppa with Peter were amazed that God had poured out his gift of the Holy Spirit on the Gentiles also. 46 For they heard them speaking in strange tongues and praising God's greatness. Peter spoke up: 47 “These people have received the Holy Spirit, just as we also did. Can anyone, then, stop them from being baptized with water?” 48 So he ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay with them for a few days.

Some think that the gentiles who spoke in tongues were speaking in an angelic language; but it probably means that the Jewish believers were surprised to hear that God could be praised in languages other than Hebrew. Perhaps being filled with the Holy Spirit is learning to praise God in your mother tongue?


Lord help me to praise you from the depths of my heart in the language closest to my heart.
