June 3, 2017 – Pentecost

Pastor Rusty Brian

Scripture:

Key Points:

  • To do a good job, we need to be told the expectations and how to do the job.
  • Bible provides answers: We were created by a good, loving God, that we might worship a good loving God, bring people to worship, to serve God.
  • We are vessels to be filled up with God. We are empty, a void looking to be filled. What will fill us up, and what purpose will we serve?
  • God want to fill us with living water, new wine.  He was us to overflow, that we are giving.  We are overflowing with newness.  The newness is only through God.
  • In the passage, the Holy Spirit gathered the Jesus’ followers, and through Him, spoke and all understood.
  • We are intended to be filled in the Holy Spirit with the new wine, overflow with God’s love, so that other know Him.
  • This passage was the start of the church.
  • The earlier followers began to start new patterns, gathering together on one day, the first day of the week.
  • As they gather, the become emboldened to speak out, proclaiming Jesus, our Savior.  (Note: Jesus’ followers, disciples had been in hiding after his Crucifixion.
  • This is Pentecost.
