Empowered by the Spirit
Empowering Preparation

Acts 2:5-13 | 5 Now there were dwelling in
Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation
under heaven. 6 And at this sound the multitude
came together, and they were bewildered, because
each one was hearing them speak in his own
language. 7 And they were amazed and astonished,
saying, “Are not all these who are speaking
Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each of us
in his own native language? 9 Parthians and Medes
and Elamites … 11 both Jews and proselytes,
Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our
own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all
were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another,
“What does this mean?” 13 But others mocking said,
“They are filled with new wine.”

Key Idea: The key to effectiveness is the
preparation of the Holy Spirit who acts in
advance of our missionary service.

Outline: The preparation of the Holy Spirit…

1. A-ttracts attention.

2. C-hallenges conventions.

3. T-ranscends type.

4. S-ows separation.
