Q: How is the Holy Spirit like filling up a balloon?
Answer: When you let it go, you don’t know where it will land.
Be lifted up, carried away & moved into a whole new life! Jesus promised that it’s true – but can we let go of our old life to make way for the new life with Him?
Today is Pentecost – the third of our three major holy days. Today, we remember how the Holy Spirit came to Jesus’ followers. In the form of “a sound like the rush of a violent wind,” God’s Spirit “filled the entire house” where the believers had gathered. It changed them forever, transforming them from scaredy-cats into doers of mighty deeds.
At PEACE Lutheran Church, we welcome all those who yearn to be transformed by God’s mighty Spirit!
“All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit.” – Acts 2:4
It’s Pentecost! Today we start a season of growth, putting down strong roots and reaching up with strong branches into a new life with Christ Jesus!
Today’s Bible Readings: Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104:24-34, 35b; Romans 8:14-17; John 14:8-17, 25-27
