They Knew It Had to Be God

When the Holy Spirit truly moves, God is the one praised.  Jesus is the one lifted up.  When the Spirit moved at Pentecost, people knew there was a power present that came from God.  That’s why they didn’t leave saying “John is amazing!  He learned a new language in a matter of seconds!”  They knew it had to be God.  Let’s pray that God would empower us so radically that we would get no glory.  That people would see our works glorify God.
