This Sunday is National Back to Church Sunday.
Jesus has given us the church as a gift. The church is a place to Belong, Believe and Become.
In Luke chapter 7 we read the story of a sinful woman who came to Jesus. He didn’t condemn her but showed love and acceptance. She felt accepted by God’s love. As a result of this acceptance and belonging she repented of her sins and believed on Christ. In this newfound belief she began to become the person God made her to be.
Let’s pray for who we can reach out to this week so they may come to Belong, Believe and Become the person God made them to be. Let’s grow in His grace together!
This Sunday we will celebrate the Birthday of the church. Pentecost Sunday is recognized worldwide as the birthday of the Church. The color for Pentecost is Red. Red is associated with the tongues or flames of fire that appeared and sat on each believer that was gathered in the Upper Room there in Jerusalem.
In Acts 1:8 Jesus said; “You shall receive power after the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you shall be my witnesses…” On the day of Pentecost Jesus poured the Holy Spirit on his followers so they were empowered or enabled to live for and serve Him.
Join with me in prayer for this Sunday’s services. Let’s believe the Lord the give us a fresh empowering of His Spirit. Invite someone to come and worship with us.
I look forward to what the Lord is going to do as we gather in His name.
