The Path: A Journey Through the Bible        

Chapter Twenty-One: Filled with the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is alive and well in this chapter! We will read the first part of the Book of Acts, and hear many of the stories of the early church. We will delve into the story of Pentecost and learn that the Holy Spirit was with people of faith long before Pentecost. We will discover what happened to Ananias and Sapphira when they held back a portion of the profit on their land -- yikes! We will explore the struggles of the early church, the transformation of Saul from persecutor of Christians to one of its staunchest members…Paul. Peter has his eyes opened as well, realizing that both Jews and Gentiles can follow Jesus. Ponder how the church’s struggles and moments of transformation and grace might mirror the struggles in your own spiritual life.
