The Shepherd's Voice
What's Happening Today
As We Gather
Pentecost proves for God’s people that Jesus remains at work in our midst. As we read the story of Pentecost in Acts 2, we see that the ascension departure of Jesus some ten days beforehand is not the end of His work in this world. Far from it! Jesus continues His saving work through the Spirit, whom He poured out upon the lives of His earliest followers. This same Spirit of Jesus enables us to carry His message into the world. We are the messengers who spread the Good News of Him who was crucified for us, who rose again, who reigns on high, and who will one day return to this world in His full, heavenly glory. We listen to His message today as the Spirit brings it into our midst and are assured that as we are brought to faith in Christ, we receive the fullness of who we’ve been called to be.
First.: Numbers 11:24-30 (The Lord’s Spirit rests on the elders of Israel.)
N.T.: Acts 2:1–21 (The Holy Spirit fills the disciples on Pentecost.)
Gospel: John 7:37–39 (Jesus promises the Holy Spirit to those who believe.)
Reader: Ed Mohlenhoff
Last Call: May Mission of the Month
Generator for GSLC: This month’s Mission is set out to fund a generator for Good Shepherd. This generator with make sure the sub pumps do not shut down in the event of a power outage/flood, thus preventing the basement from flooding. The generator will also be used to keep the fridge and freezer running. This way Good Shepherd will always remain up and running. Any extra monies would go into the General Church Fund.
