When I look at God’s Word I am amazed at the noteworthy way God introduces significant events. Rainbows for no more floods; Astronomical displays recognizing the birth of Christ; and speaking in tongues introducing the beginning of Christianity.
Many people unjustly dismiss the significance of speaking in tongues recorded on the Day of Pentecost. God did not leave it up to man to highlight its greatness. God simply had his believers speaking in a language “not unto men, but unto God.” (I Corinthians 14:2).
The very first response from those filled with the new birth spirit is a perfect prayer to God who is magnified for His magnificent works. "We do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God." (Acts 2:11) "For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God." (Acts 10:46).
God had the 12 apostles speaking known languages that were unknown to them, yet they spoke it in a miraculous way that all the foreign visitors heard them speak in their own language! That is nothing short of being phenomenal.
The enormity of speaking in tongues is evident in all that it does, including: You know that you are a child of God and a joint heir of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16 & 17); You speak directly to God, along with divine secrets (I Corinthians 14:2); You edify or build yourself up (I Corinthians 14:4 & Jude 20); You give thanks well (I Corinthians 14:15 & 17); You worship God truly with the spirit (Philippians 3:3 & John 4:23 & 24). These and what was mentioned earlier provides an unparalleled source of communication and blessings to the knowledgeable believer.
Speak in tongues much. It is a beautiful reality!
