THEME: GIFT OF TONGUES
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.”
-When the day of Pentecost came and the disciples were gathered, the Holy Spirit came upon them mightily and they received the gift of speaking in tongues. About ten years later after this occurrence, Paul went to Ephesus to preach the gospel and found some disciples and asked them if they received the Holy Spirit when they believed. When they said no, he placed his hands on them and the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke in tongues and prophesied (Acts 19:6). Jesus calls us to come to Him and drink from the rivers of living water that flow from within us, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39). From these scriptures we see that, when one believes in Christ, he/she is born of the Holy Spirit and is able to speak in tongues. The gift of tongues can also be administered by an apostle or servant of God who has the same gift. Most importantly, the Holy Spirit gives us the gift of tongues as He wills, when we desire it.
Oh, sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done marvelous things. His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory. The LORD has made known His salvation, His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations. He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth. Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises. We praise You Holy Spirit and welcome You into our lives, reign in our hearts we humbly ask You. Impart in us Your most precious gift of speaking in tongues and Your entire church; that we may always minister unto You in prayer and praise. Thank You Holy Spirit for this far that You have brought us, You have done marvelous things in our lives. We submit our lives into Your hands, take control of our lives. All glory, honor, power, authority, salvation and praise belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
