June 9, 2019 – Pentecost Sunday – The Fire Keeps Burning

Rev. Brian Johnson

Series: Church on the MOVE – A Sermon Series on the Book of Acts

Scripture: Acts 2:1-21; Acts 28:17-31

Pentecost is often called “the church’s birthday” because on the day of Pentecost, the church was filled with the Holy Spirit and experienced its first miraculous expansion.  Pentecost is the beginning of the church’s story and the source of our energy to keep doing God’s work.  Today we look at the beginning and end of the book of Acts, and we think about how, just like God’s Spirit gave Paul the power to keep doing God’s work, it does the same for us.

This Week: Paul went all the way to Rome (and to his death) in order to share the love of Jesus.  How far are you willing to go in order to share God’s love?

Ask God to refresh you, fill you with the Holy Spirit, and enable you to recommit to the work of Jesus.

 

Ask God to fill our church with the power of God’s Holy Spirit so that we can make a difference in the world.
