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.
This weekend is Memorial Day weekend and Sunday is Ascension Sunday.
On Ascension Sunday we remember that Jesus ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of God to intercede for us. He intercedes for us as our Savior, He prays for us and fills us with His Spirit in order to live for Him. As we gather for worship this weekend let’s come expecting to be filled with His Spirit once again.
