I Love My Church - It's Not About "Where" But "Who"

I wish I could have been there!

 

TODAY IS PENTECOST SUNDAY … I WISH I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE!

“It is not the location but the spiritually transformed people themselves that are at the heart of genuine worship.”

Gregg R. Allison

John 4:24 (ESV) (Memory)

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 

JOHN WAS THERE

1 John … GOD IS LIGHT

1 John … GOD IS LOVE

John 4 … GOD IS SPIRIT

John 3:16-17

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.”

John 4:24 (ESV)

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 

I LOVE MY CHURCH … More than just a “series” … a way of life

John 4:24 (ESV)

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” 

 

It’s Not About Where but WHO

PENTECOST SUNDAY 1990 YEARS AGO

Acts 2:46-47

And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.

“The strikingly new nature of Christian worship honors the Father, as experienced through Jesus, by the indwelling of the Spirit.”

Mark Moore page 229

“When we worship Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit, it opens access to God himself.”

Mark Moore

YOU DON’T NEED A MOUNTAIN

And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
