When we think about the power of the Spirit of God, we tend to focus on the miraculous. You know what I mean. Those unbelievable, inexplicable outpourings of His power like we read about in the New Testament. Like what happened on the day of Pentecost when the disciples suddenly found themselves able to speak in foreign languages they didn’t previously know. Or how they were able to perform miracles such as healing the sick, giving sight to the blind, or even raising the dead. Now, that’s power. But one of the true miracles that accompanied the coming of the Holy Spirit was the radical transformation of the lives of the disciples. They went from being timid, cowering-in-the-corner followers of Christ to bold, Spirit-filled proclaimers of the gospel of Jesus Christ. And within days their number had grown from a handful to more than 3,000. And they had all things in common, including their love for Christ and for one another. All as a result of the power of the Spirit.
