THEME: GIFT OF TONGUES
“And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have? ”
-It was astonishing to Peter and the other Jews how Cornelius the centurion and his family and friends were filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. Peter inquired of the people whether anyone opposed their baptism, having received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Like Cornelius and his household, we note that the gift of tongues allows us the opportunity to magnify God and appreciate Him as the King of kings and Lord of lord’s and our only God. Since we are all in Christ Jesus and there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave nor free, nor is there male and female (Gal 3:28), we all have the privilege to speak in tongues as the Holy Spirit wills. Like Cornelius, we are reminded to pray earnestly and perform works of righteousness through alms giving, and when we draw closer to God, he will draw near us.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom Lord, Your dominion endures throughout all generations. Great are You our Father and greatly to be praised. Your greatness is unsearchable and Your dominion endures to all generations. We extol You our God and King and bless Your name forever and ever. Every day we will bless You and praise Your name, forever and ever. Lord You uphold all who fall and raises up all who are bowed down, remember us with mercy Father. Give us generous hearts and teach us how to pray and praise You in tongues. Thank You Jesus for Your sacrifice on the cross for the purpose of our redemption from sin. Thank You for Your eternal love and grace upon us. Thank You for Your gift of salvation upon our lives and our loved ones. You have united all tribes, people and nations through Your merciful love, thank You for giving us Your Holy Spirit to dwell in us, empower us and help us always. Fill us with Your grace Holy Spirit that we may speak in tongues and partake of Your glorious gifts; as You wish. Lord You are good and Your mercies endures forever. Holy Spirit You are good and Your righteousness is everlasting. Father You are good and Your love endures to all generations. Amen
