Stop, Drop, and Roll (Pentecost Sunday)

Text- (Acts 2:3) They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. (New International Version)

Thought Starters
Pentecost Sunday is the only Sunday of the year when the color of the church is red. Fifty days after Passover, the celebration of First Fruits. That is what everyone was celebrating that day in Jerusalem.

Luke tells us in the book of Acts, Chapter 2. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of the wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then he tells us in verse three. (read text)

Fire on top of their heads! What would you do if you had fire on top of your head? What are you taught to do if you catch on fire?

Stop, Drop, and Roll. That puts the flames out. These flames were above their heads and were not going out any time soon. The followers of Jesus had their own version of Stop, Drop, and Roll that Pentecost day.

This noisy wind caused them to STOP. Then observe what was going to happen

They DROPPED what they were doing and began speaking in foreign languages as the Holy Spirit helped them to do. No one understood the other.

The followers of Jesus ROLLED out to tell others about Him, each in their new language, and they continue to this day.

Hymn-“Spirit of the Living God” – Daniel Iverson

Prayer-Dear Lord, thank you for the Holy Spirit. And for the special fire that grows in all of us. Amen
