_Acts 2:43 – And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles._
Unlike what is obtainable today, in the days of the early Church, signs wonders and miracles were more easily wrought amongst the people because they feared God and reverenced His anointed ones. Our opening text captures one such example.
In Acts 2, when the Holy Ghost came upon the brethren who were assembled in the upper room, cloven tongues as of fire rested upon them and they began to speak with new tongues. It amazed the people to hear them speak in their various languages, and then Peter arose with boldness and began to preach. The people saw all these and repented and were baptized. When the people saw all these, fear came upon every soul and only then, were many signs and wonders wrought by the hands of the Apostles. Previously, this could not happen because the people disregarded the Apostles. So, it took reverence to come upon the people for the wonders of God to be wrought in their midst by the Apostles.
Do you want to experience wonders in your life today? If yes, then you need to constantly maintain reverence in your heart for the Supreme God, and for His ministers. Take a cue from the early Church and begin to do this right away.
