Today’s devotion is based on Acts 5:32, “And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Once more, we are reminded in this Bible text that the Holy Trinity is the reality behind which all our knowledge of God exists. The disciples were witnessing not with their own intellect and power, but with wisdom and power of God as it was shown to them by the Holy Spirit.
God’s promises are fulfilled. The Son and the Holy Spirit are now a reality. The disciple and thus us speak of something that actually happened. Those events, as they are written down for us, are the cornerstone of a new life for all who believe in them. It is truly a life of faith in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is the life we live in.
Please pray with me the prayer for today. Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, thank you for what we can see and experience of your wonderful gifts. They are far more than we can understand, receive, or lift up to, yet they are the words of life with you. All praise and glory to you. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
