The Work of The Holy Spirit
A Sermon on Acts 4:29-33
And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
They Had Everything in Common
Now the full number of those who believed were of one heart and soul, and no one said that any of the things that belonged to him was his own, but they had everything in common. And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. (ESV)
The Spirit in preaching and miracles; the Spirit as the power of God; the Spirit that convicts; but not always convinces; the Spirit that reveals; the blindness of the world; the defeat of Satan.
