Father, Warrior, and Consuming Fire – Nathan Shaw
I love watching God encounter people by His Spirit. I have often seen God simultaneously encounter people in a meeting and reveal Himself in totally different ways to each person. The book of Acts paints a similar picture.
In Acts chapter 2 the Holy Spirit rushed upon 120 believers and gave them a voice—“We hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God” (Acts 2:11). This was the start of a chain reaction. The new found boldness in the lives of the 120 led to 3000 people being “cut to the heart,” baptized in water, and initiated into a radical new lifestyle (Acts 2:37-47). But that still wasn’t the end.
