Lord, send out your Spirit and renew the face of the earth.

Acts 2 marks a pivotal point in the New Testament. One hundred and twenty men and women became members of the church when it was born in the upper room. After the power of the Holy Spirit fell upon the believers, those visiting Jerusalem began to wonder how the disciples could speak so many languages.

Then Peter stood up and began to speak: the same Peter who ran in fear on the night of Jesus’ trial now spoke boldly. He captivated everyone with his compelling words. Peter knew where he was going; he didn’t focus on himself but on others. He exuded warmth and love and gave people practical answers to their needs.

What can we do? We can love life, give people hope and share ourselves. Let us ask God to bless us in our everyday lives.
