SERMON: June 9th, 2019 “Pentecost”
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). Are we making a difference? We have been called to be a “distinct people, to live a life that looks like God for the sake of the world where we would treat others and this world better” (Dr.Stan Helton). Peter was loaded up on the Holy Spirit at Pentecost and boldy began to preach. Where is our boldness? Even Paul, who as Saul was a persecutor of Christians, was changed by the Spirit that lead him to write that we are to offer our bodies as living sacrifices as to the Lord; to be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Romans 12:1-2). God is asking us to faithfulness; to trust. Are we available to be used by Him? Only we can make this choice – to follow Him or the world.
