Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. All who believed were together and had all things in common; they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. Acts 2:43-44
Last night Spirit sent me to Pauline’s room where her dear daughter stood rejoicing for her Mother’s life. Minutes earlier Pauline had gone to heaven. Joining in the praise and thanksgiving, daughter and I spoke with awe within the Spirit’s Holy glory left behind as Mighty God took her heavenward, relieving her of great suffering.
While alive, Pauline had received many wonders and signs from Christ in her lifetime, Spirit had gifted her with speaking in tongues, and her daughter’s praise for her Mother’s joy-filled life is glorious. From Spirit Pauline received dying grace.
Spirit makes us abundantly alive in Him as Spirit fills us to overflowing– using Spirit opportunities to rejoice and praise together, knowing wonders and signs, and Spirit transforming us to be like Jesus. Wonders and signs continue to be done by His apostles today; we are so very grateful to Christ. And having all things in common, we are to freely give to one another without expectation of reimbursement.
