Devotional: The Scary Spirit

Heritage Presbyterian Church

Scripture: Acts 2

Theme: When the writer of Acts describes the Day of Pentecost and the arrival of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, the picture in our imagination can be frightening. After all, we read of tongues of fire, a violent rushing wind, and men speaking in languages they do not know. Yes, the Holy Spirit can appear frightening, but the Apostle Paul tells us that there are more gifts of the Spirit than these (and they are NOT so frightening!)
