Experiencing Pentecost

The Apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost demonstrating God’s new dwelling place. When you come to Christ, you experience your own personal Pentecost – the gift of the Holy Spirit. Colossians 1:27 “To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” 1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?”
* When we become Spirit filled, we receive the fullness of the Spirit, correct? But I’ve heard people speak on being continually filled on a daily basis. Can you please clarify this for me?
* Barry’s wife lost her parents recently and he asks for Scripture and prayer to help her grief.

God is With Us

“Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne, he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. Acts 2:29-33 * David asks about the cost of discipleship.

The Significance of Pentecost

We hope all the moms out there had a very special Mother’s Day, complete with the honor due them. – This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday and should be celebrated everywhere. “The time when the Holy Spirit was sent to us. And while staying with them he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, ‘you heard from me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.'” Acts 1:4-5

Redemption, The Forgiveness of Sins

Jesus cried “It is finished!” from the cross and his work was done. The result of that is that ” In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace”. Ephesians 1:7 If you’re in him you receive this gift of grace.

Teaching the Truth

Today is “Teacher Appreciation Day” and we all have teachers to thank for their influence in our lives. It’s a great day to say “thank you” to those special people. One of the great truths we have the opportunity to teach is the complete forgiveness in Jesus Christ. When we receive him, we receive forgiveness of sins. And we see that when Peter delivers the first Gospel message to Gentiles. Acts 10 * Antoine wants to know how to speak to his Muslim friend.
* How do I learn to live in the truth of Christ in me?
* Sean comments that the laws of the land and their need to be upheld.
