Be Filled with the Holy Spirit!

Friday 28th March 2008 - Easter Friday

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, addressed them.

Peter and John have been arrested after healing a cripple and proclaiming the resurrection of Jesus. At their interrogation Peter is filled with the Holy Spirit and speaks boldly, proclaiming the Good News of Jesus to the assembly.

From being a weak sandpile a few days earlier, Peter is now the bold rock on which the Church can now be built. The difference? ...being filled with the Holy Spirit. In these early days the fledgling church was being founded by the Holy Spirit. The need of the Holy Spirit is just as great today for the church; just as great today for me...

Come Holy Spirit, fall afresh on me.
Little Flower, please pray for me.
