Acts 2:39 The promise is for you and you

Acts 2:39

The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off-for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

What a simple but incredible verse regarding the promise of the Holy Spirit!

Wherever you are today, you may be far away from Jerusalem where this promise was first made and you are certainly many generations on from that 1st century generation who first received the promise and yet: the promise of the Holy Spirit to you is the same as it was first given.

It doesn’t matter if you are “far off” you should receive like you are the “you” in “The promise is for you”.
The Holy Spirit with you is the same Holy Spirit that was with the first century generation church. Not a watered down, sanitised, all encompassing version of the Spirit. But the same. The unshakeable, confident, powerful and authoritative Holy Spirit is yours. He is with you now.
How incredible!
