RE Verse reading–Acts 1:12-14, 2:1-18 (day seven) “These men are not drunk. . .this is what was spoken of through the prophet Joel: ‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind.’ ” (vs 15-17) It is a cliche of this age. People speak of being “spiritual” with little or no understanding of the Scripture’s picture of this unique life. One huge difference is the element of conviction. “When the Spirit comes, He will convict the world of sin” (John 16:8) The Spirit-filled person will not live an easy relationship with the world system. His presence in us will sting the conscience of our friends and family, raising either confusion “What does this mean?” or criticism “These people are drunk”. It is unavoidable. Those filled with the Spirit of God will feel the tension that exists between the Spirit and the flesh. May we be inspired to suffer the tension well. God is at work convicting people of sin!
