May 28th Worship Service

The Book of Acts opens with the author explains how he told about Jesus’ work and teaching in the Gospel of Luke.  The purpose of the Book of Acts is to tell Theophilus how the Christian community grew after Jesus.  In this introduction we learn Jesus told the disciples to stay in Jerusalem and they would receive the gift of the Spirit to guide them.

The book begins with the disciples, and Jesus, standing on the Mount of Olives.  Asked about coming events Jesus tells them it only for the Father to know what is going to happen and, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Jesus begins to ascend into the clouds and the disciples watch him until he disappears.  Suddenly two angels appear and tell them he will return…meanwhile they are to do as he told them.  The disciples return to Jerusalem.  One of their first efforts is electing Mathias to take the place of Judas.

Ten days later the accession, as they are sitting in the upper room, they hear to roaring of the wind and see a flame appear in their midsts.  The flame breaks into sections which align over the disciples, and then as one descends into each disciple, and they are filled to overflowing.  Feeling as if they are going to burst open they spill out of the room into the streets.  Speaking a language they did not know they start telling people of a risen Lord.

The streets of Jerusalem are filled with people from all areas of the Roman Empire who have come to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Weeks.  Now they hear the disciples speaking in their native tongue telling them the Christ story.  Scripture says 3,000 turned to Christ that day, and Christian Community was established. 

Join for Pentecost us as Pastor Bob explores life with the Holy Spirit in our May 28th Worship Service.
