TODAY’S LESSON

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 19:1-6

And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,

He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.

Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

MEMORY VERSE: 1 Corinthians 14:2 (KJV)

he that speaketh in an unknown not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.”

INTRODUCTION

“Glossa” is a Greek word meaning an unknown tongue. According to Jesus Christ, the ability to speak with new tongues shall be one of the signs that follow those who believe in Him (Mark 16:17).

While believers receive the Holy Spirit at the point of conversion (Acts 2:38), they are expected to continue to thirst and hunger for the infilling of the Holy Spirit (Luke 24:29).

The ability to speak in an unknown tongue is one of the outward (physical) evidence of the overflow of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer (Acts 2:4).
