Wonders Never Cease

5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” Acts 2:5-11

When God moves on your city, people notice. As the Disciples spoke in other tongues, many people understood them in their own language. This was entirely a supernatural experience. The recipients were just as baffled as those who heard them speaking.

It’s important to note what they heard too: “declaring the wonders of God”. Did the Disciples know what they were saying? Possibly. But it wasn’t important. What was important was that those hearing it heard it loud and clear.

What were these “wonders of God?” We can’t know for sure but they could have detailed what the Hebrews experienced through the years and how the Lord delivered them.

Those “wonders” could have been the unique attributes of His creation.

Or the wonders could have been a retelling of how a virgin gave birth to the Messiah, and how he was mocked, crucified, and risen from the dead.

The wonders of God are not unique to this short list. You have your own wonders of God that only you can tell. When the opportunity arises, don’t be bashful about sharing those wonders with others.
