"Revealing the Voice of God" - Text File - Video
Acts 19:1-7 gives an account of the Apostle Paul encountering a group of disciples while he was traveling around the Mediterranean spreading the gospel. Without even saying, “Hi,” Paul asked them a serious question: “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?” Their answer was the biblical version of, “Huh??” Paul discovered that they had been baptized “into John’s baptism” – one of repentance in anticipation of Jesus – and explained to them that they needed to be baptized in Jesus’ name if they were to receive the Holy Spirit. I wonder what made Paul question whether these people had received the Holy Spirit. My guess is that they were acting and speaking in one of two ways. Either they were stuck in the repentance stage of their faith or they were doing or saying something that made Paul believe they weren’t being guided by God. People get into trouble when they look to themselves or the wrong leaders to solve the problems of the world without first being led by God. If there is to be peace in this world, we must show that we are led by the Holy Spirit – no questions asked.
