John 14:15-18; Acts 2:1-39
Before He went back to Heaven, Jesus promised His followers that He would send them the Holy Spirit. Ten days after Jesus returned to Heaven, His followers were all together in one place. You can see them in this picture. Suddenly, there was a sound like a great wind. Tongues like fire appeared above each of the followers. The Holy Spirit came and filled them all, just as Jesus Christ had promised. People from many nations were in Jerusalem that day. The followers received power to speak to them in their own languages. They told the gathered people about the wonderful things that God had done. 3000 people turned to Jesus Christ that day. Today the Holy Spirit lives in all people who truly follow the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit gives us power to obey Jesus Christ and to tell others about Him.
