Re:Verse reading–Luke 1:1-38 (day five)
“For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother’s womb.” Luke 1:15 “The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you,” Luke 1:35
By reading Luke’s Gospel right after reading Acts (also written by Luke) we see the influence and insights he learned while traveling with Paul.
“Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them Acts 4:8
”Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus … has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 9:17
“And the disciples were continually filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.”
Luke connects the same constant catalyst for God’s activity in the world in his Gospel. The Holy Spirit.
This week, this day, this hour, we too, need God to fill us with His Holy Spirit. He is our source and hope for the promised presence and power of God to work in us and through us.
