Summary: My heart aches for a glimpse, for a taste of what that Day of Pentecost was all about. And you know what, I have Hope that we will experience it, here, in our church, in our town, in our own families, with our own friends, with our neighbors.

AC 2:36 "Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you

crucified, both Lord and Christ."

AC 2:37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and

the other apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"

AC 2:38 Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus

Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39

The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the

Lord our God will call."

AC 2:40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, "Save

yourselves from this corrupt generation." 41 Those who accepted his message were

baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

AC 2:42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the

breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and

miraculous signs were done by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had

everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he

had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke

bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and

enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those

who were being saved.

Can You Imagine 3,000 people being saved in one day, in one place, in one service?

That’s over half of Clarksville!

That’s what Revival can do to a people. That’s what a group of Spirit Filled,

Spirit led, Spirit Powered people can be used by God to accomplish for His Glory.

Do You want to experience something like that?

Does Your Heart Ache to see such an outpouring of God’s Spirit that People’s lives are

changed and People are saved?

My heart aches for a glimpse, for a taste of what that Day of Pentecost was all about.

And you know what, I have Hope that we will experience it, here, in our church, in our

town, in our own families, with our own friends, with our neighbors. I have Hope because

I know what God can do. And I pray for that breakthrough.

This morning I want you to know that it wasn’t by chance that those people were saved, it

wasn’t a case of being at the right place at the right time. The reason it happened was

because God’s people were doing what God wanted them to do. They were praying.

What were they Praying for? They were praying for the promised Comforter that Jesus

had said he would send. They were praying for the Holy Spirit.

You see Jesus knew that these 120 or so disciples and followers did not have the ability,

they didn’t have the knowledge, they didn’t have the courage, they didn’t have anything

within thier own power to accomplish God’s Will in the world. They may have been

devoted followers, but they would be lost with out the Power of the Holy Spirit in their

lives.

Can I tell you something this morning?

That hasn’t changed in the last 2000 years. If you don’t have the power, that resurrection
