“Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them” Acts 2:3 

We live in a very individualistic world, that seems to be racing toward more self-focus not less. When the Spirit came on Pentecost the Spirit landed on each of the disciples as individual tongues of flame. Yet the result was something designed to bring people together. The Spirit gave each of the apostles the ability to speak in another language so that the all people divided by their culture and language could hear the good news of Jesus together. I think we need a movement of the Holy Spirit now to break through our individuality and draw us to something above ourselves to free us from self-focus. The Spirit aims for our unity by drawing us to Christ together. When we turn our gaze toward Jesus we will find that we are not alone and gain all the gifts that come with a community centered on the Lord.
