    « Sunday Sermon Recap - June 2 »

    Good Wednesday to you,

     

    Last Sunday we took a look at Paul and Silas in the Philippian jail. It was not a pleasant experience. They were ceased by an angry mom for casting a demon out of a young girl, and faced false accusations that were racially and culturally motivated. Stripped and beaten, they were cast in the “inner cell” placed in stocks and locked up for the night. Our takeaway? Love of money often trumps truth and dignity.  Standing for truth is sometimes costly.

     

    That wasn’t the end of the story. Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God well into the night. Their hope was secure; they trusted God with their lives regardless of their circumstances. They were ready to take anything this world could “throw” at them, because they knew in whom they had believed. There was no expectation for a miracle, but one happened! At midnight, an earthquake shook the jailhouse, their chains fell off and the doors opened! The poor jailer thought his life was over, yet Paul cried out to him that they were all still there. The jailer fell before them and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” The answer, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved!”

     

    Sometimes, God shows up unexpectedly and surprises us. That is always a wonderful thing when it happens, but it doesn’t always happen. However, God always knows what is going on in our lives. Our challenge is to be prepared (ahead of time) for any challenge that comes our way. And challenges will come. There is a cost to discipleship. They hated Jesus; they will hate us. Be prepared by knowing in whom you believe. Study Scripture, memorize verses. Pray, sing and gather with other believers. Work on those “soul exercises,” and when the challenges appear, you will be ready!

     

    Next week is Pentecost Sunday, so wear RED to worship. Our call to worship will be Romans 8:12-16. The Old Testament reading (first service) is Psalm 104:24-33 and the sermon text will be John 14:15-26. I will also refer to Acts 2:1-21!

     

    Remember, WEAR RED ON SUNDAY!

     

    I hope to see you soon,

     

    Pastor David
