The Ultimate Surprise Party

Acts 2: 1-3 “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them.”

When the first followers of Jesus gathered together one day, it turned into a surprise party with the Holy Spirit as the guest of honour. It was shocking, it was perplexing, and it was joyful. It changed the way they lived out their faith and began a new chapter in the history of Christianity. All the surprising, amazing, unexpected events that occurred in the early church, which are described in the book of Acts, would never had happened without the day of Pentecost, the day the church was born. Since that day, God has continued to come into our lives in new and surprising ways!
