Today is Pentecost Sunday.
– day from which our churches take their name.
– day that was a turning point in the New Testament.
– day that a traditional religious mould was broken.
… the birth-day of the modern church.
… and we got to experience it again.
A Growing Disciple
There’s a young man that we’ve known since our arrival in France back in 2015. William is one of the tallest in physical stature and continues to grow tall in spiritual stature as well.
Over the past two years, he has really grown in leaps and bounds and become one of our church’s most faithful members: present at just about every prayer meeting, youth meeting and Sunday service.
On Pentecost Sunday last year, God filled him with the Holy Ghost, with the evidence of speaking in tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance (Acts 2.4), and after careful consideration, he put into practice 1 Peter 3.21 where, in referencing Noah and the water that cleansed during the flood, the author says:
“…and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also —not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ…”1 Peter 3.21
Today I’m grateful …
…that young people are still rising up to become disciples of Christ, according to the Biblical example.
