    A Spirit-Filled Church
    Series: (All)
    Jesus promised to give the Holy Spirit to His disciples after He returned to His Father.  That promise is fulfilled at Pentecost.  Acts Chapter 2 records this amazing one-time experience that took place in Jerusalem 50 days after Jesus celebrated the Passover with His Disciples. And yet, each of the members of Christ’s Body, the Church, receives the Holy Spirit even today through faith and baptism.  What does it mean to be “Spirit-filled” and how does the indwelling of the Holy Spirit affect us as individuals, and as a church? My Next Step(s): - I will not resist the Holy Spirit in my life, but rather seek to hear His voice and follow His leading. - I will witness boldly about what Christ has done for me. - I will discover my Spiritual Gift(s) and use it/them for the common good. - I will live a Spirit-filled, holy life, set apart and dedicated to God’s glory.

    Maintaining Hope
    How do we remain hopeful in a world that seems hopelessly broken? How do we continue to trust a God that seems conspicuously absent? How do we find peace in a world that is spinning out of control? If you've ever asked questions like these, you're not alone. The uncertainty we face today is no different from the uncertainty faced by the men and women of the Bible. And like them, uncertainty can cause us to question God's faithfulness, His presence and His concern. What or whom you are hoping in determines your ability to maintain hope.  Our hope is in God’s love for us.  When life is uncertain, God is not. He’s *still* got the whole world in his hands. My Next Step(s): ○ I will examine the frustrations in my life to determine on what I’ve built my hopes. ○ I will take comfort in knowing that nothing in all creation can separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus. ○ I will place my hope in Christ Jesus my Lord.

    Peace Through Prayer

    How do we remain hopeful in a world that seems hopelessly broken? How do we continue to trust a God that seems conspicuously absent? How do we find peace in a world that is spinning out of control? If you've ever asked questions like these, you're not alone and you're not the first. The uncertainty we face today is no different from the uncertainty faced by the men and women of the Bible. And like them, uncertainty can cause us to question God's faithfulness, His presence and His concern. When life is uncertain, God is not. He’s *still* got the whole world in his hands. Pray until the peace comes.

    My Next Steps:
    - I will reflect on God’s goodness and mercy in my life until my emotions catch up with that reality.
    - I will present my deepest fears, worries and desires to the Lord in prayer.
    - I will invite Almighty God to guard my heart in Christ Jesus.
    - I will rejoice IN THE LORD, rather than waiting for my circumstances to change first.i
