May 20, 2018 – “Strength in Weakness” – Acts 2:1-21; Romans 8:22-27

The recorded sermon is unavailable. In it the pastor made the following points.

The second chapter of Acts describes an incredible, almost once in a lifetime event with the Holy Spirit descending on the disciples as a great wind and fire, causing them to tell the story of Jesus, and seeming to speak in each hearer’s native tongue.

As incredible as this was, it is difficult for us to relate that appearance of the Holy Spirit to its presence in our own lives.

Paul, in his letter to the Romans, wrote “the Spirit comes to help our weakness. We don’t know what we should pray, but the Spirit himself pleads our case.”

Even when we don’t realize it, we are always weak, always in need of the Spirit’s help. And the Spirit is always present.
