Pentecost Sermons

1. What’s So Important About Pentecost?

Scripture: Acts 2:1-13

Summary: A look at the importance of this sometimes missed church holiday.

“We also find that the Holy Spirit came in the fire. Not only did they hear the Spirit come but they saw it as well. They saw fire appear and a little flame came to each of them and rested on them. The fire meant something very important.”

2. The Holy Spirit 

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 12:4-6

Summary: In this message, we explore who the Holy Spirit is and who we are in the Holy Spirit.

“Who is the Holy Spirit? When we talk about God the Father, we can understand the concept of a Father, when we talk about God the Son, again we can understand a Son, but what happens when we say, God the Holy Spirit? People can understand something they see or know, but we can’t see the Spirit. However, the Holy Spirit is God, He’s not an it, but a person of the Godhead, and He is in every believer. The Holy Spirit does today what Jesus did 2000 years ago.”

3. The Need of Pentecostal Power

Scripture: Acts 2:1-4

Summary: This message reminds the church of the need for God’s power in order to really do God’s work.

“The Church was born at Pentecost and now Pentecost has become a Sacred Holiday on the church calendar. Of course, Pentecost has always been a holiday that celebrated the harvest of grain. It was one of the three official feasts that called the men of Israel to worship three times a year. For Israel, it was a harvest of grain, but for the Church, Pentecost is a great harvest of the Spirit. Because of Pentecost, we reap a harvest of Power to be a witness; an ability to be renewed, transformed, and live Life in his presence. Because of Pentecost, His power is abundantly available to us that believe.”

4. Pentecost: A Day Of Prayer, Praise And Proclamation

Scripture: Acts 2:1-21

Summary: Pentecost explained as a festival celebration pointing to the time of the Spirit’s coming to empower believers to bring forth a harvest of souls.

“The word for spirit or breath in that scripture is translated “pneuma” from which we derive our word pneumonia. This was the gentle breeze of birth. Now on the day of Pentecost it was a “rushing mighty wind” and the word used is not “pneuma,” but dunomas from which we derive our word dynamite! Once Jesus had ascended, he sent the “dynamite” of his power to enable the small band of followers to “turn the world upside down” with their witness.”

5. A Miracle of Understanding

Scripture: Acts 2:1-21, 1 Corinthians 12:3-13

Summary: A sermon for Pentecost.

“It is God’s desire that everyone be included in the Church of Jesus Christ. God is no respecter of persons. It doesn’t matter to God where we have come from…..the only thing that matters to God is where we are going.”

6. The Holy Spirit

Scripture: Acts 2:1-18

Summary: The seventh phrase of the Creed: “I believe in the Holy Spirit”

“So, when we say “I believe in the Holy Spirit,” we not only affirm that God’s Spirit is the force behind and within all life, but we also state our belief that the calling that God’s Spirit brings to each life differs.”

7. Staying Awake in Church

Scripture: Acts 2:1-47

Summary: How the excitement of the Day of Pentecost can continue in the church today.

“I believe church ought always to have an element of excitement! I don’t believe church has to be boring to prove the true spirituality of our worship. On the contrary. Where the Holy Spirit is, there will be genuine enthusiasm, dynamic power, and no one will fall asleep!”

8. Knowing the Holy Spirit

Scripture: John 16:5-15

Summary: The importance and divinity of the Holy Spirit – introduction to series on the Holy Spirit
