Let us Celebrate
We have just finished our first sermon series together, as a church. It has been good to walk together through the first four chapters of Joshua, learning some fundamental lessons to move forward.
Next Sunday, the Youth Team will be leading our All Age Service. This is significant because we are going to celebrate together a time when the Holy Spirit baptized the one hundred and twenty disciples in the upper room. Such a sovereign act of God was followed by a powerful message from the apostle Peter. In his message, Peter pointed it out, that when the disciples were accused of being drunk, it was to fulfill Joel's prophecy in front of their eyes. "And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;..."(Acts 2:17 ESV).
As we gather this coming Sunday to worship the Lord, let us open our hearts and minds to the Holy Spirit. Let us be ready for His work to be accomplished in and through us. Nothing is too small to ask for. In this new season, I invite you to continue seeking the Lord and be ready for the things that He desires to do in your life.
Last Sunday, you received the first booklet of many that I will be providing in the coming weeks and months to help you to grow in Christ. This is another way to provide free Christian resources. Also, they may be useful to reach out to others. Let me know if it has been helpful. In addition, if there is any subject that you would like more resources to help you understand more clearly, please let me know; this would be really useful.
I hope to see you next Sunday, as we celebrate God's amazing love. Then, let us get some food and join together in the park for the Pentecost Picnic. I look forward to seeing you there!
May the Lord continue to bless us.
