Daily Bible Reading: Acts 4:1 – 22
Verse of the Day: Acts 4:8a – “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them…”
The Greek word πλησθεις is used to describe the filling of anything from a boat to a sponge. It was a common term in their language, and Luke uses it her to describe how the Holy Spirit will influence a person’s life. Luke uses this phrase eight times in his books. In every instance he showed that the filling of the Holy Spirit gave power to speak or preach for God. So, in his writings, Luke associated the filling of the Holy Spirit to the prophetic ministry. The giving of the ability to reveal or explain the Word of God.
Today, as you seek God’s Spirit in your life, look for Him to give you the ability to share the good news with those around you. The ability to apply the Word of God in every circumstance in which you find yourself.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, fill me, use me, lead me, guide me. Show me the people in which You want me to invest God’s Word in today.
