Pentecost service: How you can face the future
What do you think your future will look like? Much depends on this question. We need to think of the future, we should think of it – whether we like it or not. But can you think of the future with confidence and joy? Can your thoughts of the future even inspire you to act out of confidence and joy in your daily life, rather than out of fear and anxiety? Through faith in Christ, we can! God sent his Son Jesus to save us. From a bad future. For a good future. And God sent his Spirit to sanctify us. Which means: to transform our lives so that they are adapted and prepared for the future. No, God will not save us, because we are so well adapted for the future. But because He saved us from a bad future, He will also sanctify us and make us ready for a good future. This is what Pentecost is all about. Upcoming Sunday you can learn more about this, when we read from the Bible I Peter 4:7-11.
You are so welcome to join the service in person! (Please, register beforehand). Or to join online! A wonderful and blessed Pentecost to you all!
Treasure Seekers – in person
This Sunday is the penultimate part of the Treasure Seekers series The Reigning King, looking at the early church through Peter’s eyes.
During the ICF Delft service, the children leave for their own Bible teaching at Treasure Seekers part-way through the service, after the kids song, and rejoin for the final song of the service. The creche room is also available for 0-2 year olds.
For those not attending ICFD in person, we’ll continue to send materials by email.
This week the kids’ Bible passage is Acts 10:1-48. The Big Idea is that God showed Peter that the good news about Jesus was now for absolutely everyone.
The memory verse for the series is:
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 [NIV]
