Precepts from Pentecost

What do we know about and what can we learn from Pentecost? In this lesson, Brother Holloway discusses 1) The Day, 2) The Disciples, and 3) The Dwelling of Deity.

Acts 2:1-4 (ESV):  When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The Urgency of Unity – Part Two

The Father is pleased with unity, and it is urgent that we try to achieve it. The second part of this lesson deals with the conduct of unity and the craving for unity.

Ephesians 4:1-3 (ESV):  I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The Urgency of Unity – Part One

The Father is pleased with unity, and it is urgent that we try to achieve it. Part one of this lesson addresses the definition of unity, the call to unity, and the conduct of unity.

Ephesians 4:1-3 (ESV):  I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

The Christian’s Commitment

Why should Christians be committed? We’ve been called out, called in, called down, and called up.

2 Timothy 1:8-14 (ESV):  Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and apostle and teacher, which is why I suffer as I do. But I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that day what has been entrusted to me. Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.
