“I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.”
We are in graduation season…and at each of these graduations ceremonies, the keynote speaker will speak into the lives of young men and women who have completed their education and are ready to continue on their life journey.
Likewise on Pentecost we are like new graduates…and our keynote speaker; Peter; speaks into our lives using the words of the prophet Joel.
He reminds us of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all people…not a select few…but on everyone who gives their life to Christ.
And just like new graduates who have studied in different areas in the same school…God pours out His Spirit and send us out into the world…each with a different gift. Some with prophecy, some with visions, and some with dreams.
Dear God, thank You for the fulfillment of your promise to send us the gift of the Holy Spirit. May Your Spirit be poured out afresh on each us, and may we serve You well, wherever we are called. Amen.
