Pastor Carlos Reyes asks us to assess our walk with the Holy Spirit on this Pentecost Sunday. We are taught about why the Holy Spirit came and how it works in His people. Though we are not yet perfect, we must start functioning in the kingdom by being witnesses for the Lord.
Carlos Reyes is the pastor at NorthStar Church in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
Su Kim reminds us that “We are Citizens of Heaven” and that the things of this earth cannot satisfy. We are not perfect, but we know that God accepts us because of the cross. Therefore, we are called to imitate Jesus, the perfect example of humility, and mature Christians, our fellow citizens of heaven.
Pastor Kyu Kim brings us to John 21 to witness how, just days after denying Jesus, Peter was forgiven, restored, and called by Jesus. Peter was feeling discouraged, disqualified, and disheartened. In contrast to how the world would have treated Peter, Jesus instead reminded Peter of his beginnings and restored him to be that fisher of men.
Scripture: John 21
Pastor Kyu Kim returns to the road to Emmaus and studies why Jesus lamented about foolish men who are slow of heart to believe. In the days after His resurrenction, Jesus prepared the disciples for Pentecost by helping them understand that the Scriptures were all about Christ. And the deepest mystery is that the Savior came to sacrifice and suffer on the way to glory.
Scripture: Luke 24:13-35
Pastor Kyu Kim starts a new sermon series by explaining how Jesus prepared the disciples during the days leading to Pentecost. Like his fellow disciples, Thomas encountered with the resurrected Jesus and proclaimed Him as Lord and God. During these 50 days to Pentecost, we are encouraged to seek and fast for more of God. Be not unbelieving but believing!
Scripture: John 20:24-29
Pastor Mimi Kim asks: Do you have God’s compassion for His people? Though not everyone is currently called to go into the mission field, we are all commanded to pray for more workers for the plentiful harvest. Pastor Mimi encourages us that anyone and everyone can be useful in the missions field.
Scripture: Matthew 9:35-38
Pastor Kyu Kim takes us through the gospel of Mark to proclaim the good news: Jesus has risen! People were alternately amazed and terrified at what Jesus taught and did, and ultimately came to know that Jesus is the Son of God.
Scripture: Mark 16:1-8
