Something supernatural from heaven invaded those gathered in the upper room on the day of Pentecost and it changed them forever. What happened? The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit. That’s what happened. Our greatest need today is for those who know Jesus to experience what the early disciples experienced. If we really want to impact our community, our school, our workplace, we need to be filled with God’s Spirit. 1 Peter 4:11 says, “If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.”
When was the last time you witnessed someone living their life sold out for Jesus instead of the casual commitment that so many have today? How long has it been since you have been “stirred?” When God speaks, do you listen? The world is looking for evidence that our Christianity is real, that it has made a difference and has changed our lives.
Would you give God, the Holy Spirit, permission to do something supernatural in your heart and life today? If so, get ready. If not, you’re going to miss out.
PRAYER:Lord, revive your work in me. I don’t want to miss another day without experiencing Your best. Transform me to be the person you have called me to be. Amen.
“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tonguesas the Spirit enabled them.” – Acts 2:1-4 (NIV)

Message: The Key to Everything – Faith
Salvation cannot be earned. Sin separates of from God. If we want to be right with God, God made a way for that to happen by the giving of His perfect son who died on the cross for our sins. Through Jesus’sacrificial death and resurrection, we have the opportunity to be forgiven, to be reconciled, and to be accepted by God. The key to open all those doors is our faith.God wants us to believe in Him and trust Him with every detail of our lives.
Put your faith in action. What is your faith leading you to do? Will you give God your very best today?

Message: Pledging Our Allegiance
On July Fourth, we are reminded that our patriots made a bold declaration, paid a high price, and reaped a great reward – freedom. In scripture we are taught to fight the good fight and finish the race, but not everyone is committed or concerned. There’s a high price to pay for following after Jesus. Like our patriots, followers of Jesus will reap a great reward – freedom from the bondage of sin.
Think about that day you made a bold declaration and claimed Jesus as your Savior and Lord. Have you drifted? God is inviting you to repent and renew your commitment. Maybe you have never made that bold declaration. Do you know the gift of God is eternal life (John 3;16)? The good news is Jesus will save you, forgive you, and give you a new life! Make a bold declaration and pledge your allegiance to Jesus.
“… Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 31-32 (NIV)
