The Holy Spirit in the Book of Acts

Fun Fact: Luke mentions the Holy Spirit 57 times in the Book of Acts.

The Holy Spirit fell on each new group of believers:

  • Jews (4:31)
  • Samaritans (8:17)
  • Gentiles (10:44)
  • John the Baptist’s disciples (19:6)

The Holy Spirit personally directed each major advance of the early Church.

  • The Spirit sent Phillip into the desert to meet an Ethiopian (8:29).
  • The Spirit set apart missionaries (13:2)
  • The Spirit guided the first big chruch council (15:1-28)
  • The Spirit helped plan Paul’s itenerary (13:4, 16:6)

  1. The Holy Spirit did not discriminate between groups, but led different individuals and groups to do different things for the Church. May we keep testifying to His awesome actions in our lives. God bless you.
