Devo Why Tongues part 5
John 14:21 (NIV)
21 Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
Acts 1:4 (NIV)
4 On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
Acts 1:14-15 (NIV)
14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. 15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty)
Now if we love Christ we obey His commands. To be filled with the Holy Spirit is a command not a suggestion. I heard many people say tongues were just for the 12 Apostles, but to come to this conclusion one must ignore the facts. There were about 120 believers there that day and verse 2:4 say all of them filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other tongues. It does not say some but all.
