"The Holy Spirit for Everyone!" (Acts 2:1-21, 1 Corinthians 12:3-13)Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, May 31, 2020
Part of the Pentecost series, preached at a Pentecost service
The risen Jesus has already prepared the disciples for this moment. Having appeared to them after his resurrection, Jesus promises to deliver what his Father has promised to him: “power from on high” (Luke 24:49). The disciples are to be baptized with the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5); see Luke 3:16). Indeed, just as Jesus’ career commences with the Holy Spirit descending upon him (Luke 3:21-22), so does Pentecost ignite the careers of his disciples. Finally, before Jesus ascends into the sky he repeats the promise.
