Should You Be Speaking In Tongues?
In Acts Chapter two, at the initial outpouring of
the Holy Spirit and the accompanying speaking
in tongues, a crowd came together asking, "what
is this?" Peter answered that question and then in
verse thirty-nine proclaimed, "The promise is unto
you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off,
even as many as the Lord our God shall call." There
are different kinds of tongues with different pur-
poses. In Acts chapter two and again in chapter ten,
one of the purposes of tongues was to give evidence
of the Holy Spirit's working. In chapter two, one of
the reasons was as a sign to unbelievers. (See I Cor.
14:22) Three thousand were saved when they heard
them speaking in various languages. Not all tongue
speaking Christians will have the same ministry.
(See I Cor. Chapter 12) It is unlikely that the aver-
age Christian will use tongues as a sign to unbeliev-
ers, or as a means of communicating a message to
people. Nevertheless, the relationship of any Chris-
tian with his Lord could be greatly enhanced by the
anointing of the Spirit to express himself to the Lord
in tongues. (See I Cor. 14:2) If you are a Christian,
"The promise is unto you."
