Acts 2:1-21 and John 14:23-27
We are often drawn to those things that excite us. In movies and TV, we want to see lights, action and drama. Although those techniques enhance the content, the reality is that those techniques don’t make the content. The events surrounding Pentecost are exciting. Many focus just on those events. But the reality is that the content—the Gospel—is really where the fire is. The disciples wanted the Gospel to be central so they made sure that all knew of the glorious works of God in Christ Jesus.

The Work of the Trinity on Our Behalf
Romans 5:1-5 and Titus 3:3-7
As we celebrate Trinity Sunday, we find that the entire Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit work as one for our salvation. But what is it that we receive from Trinity’s work? God lavishes us with many gifts which are received through faith.
