The celebration of Pentecost has arrived. We have journeyed from Christ's descent to be with and like us at Christmas, to His sacred plan to restore us to God’s favor at Easter, and now our invitation to ascend with and be like Christ. What an amazing day! How is it that we don’t take it more seriously?

The church at Philidelphia is truly blessed. In his letter to them Jesus essentially compares and contrasts them with Sardis - big, rich, pretentious verses small, poor, and humble. Jesus says they will hold fast and be a pillar in heaven.

How much do you know about the Holy Spirit? Is the Spirit a person or a thing? Does the Spirit still do things in the world today? Why do you think Jesus had to leave for a while? What do you think about churches where the Spirit is celebrated and accepted with exuberance and uncommon behavior? What about the “frozen chosen” or churches who love the Lord, but remain placid with regard to the Spirit? Let’s get ready for Pentecost Sunday with a short series of messages on the Holy Spirit.

Jesus's letter to the church at Sardis is a sobering reminder to all modern American churches. It is far too easy to get comfortable with "church" and totally miss the coming of our Lord.

In this episode we examine the letter to Thyatira and contrast Lydia and Jezebel. This insightful discussion is historically remarkable and timely for today's Christians.

Matthias Who?

00:0000:00

This week we will consider the apostle Matthias. What are we to think about the apostles whose stories have been lost through history? Did they do anything that mattered? Was it all about the big three or four named apostles? Suppose the story of Matthias is there to remind us that we are very important to Jesus, but we don’t need to be important anywhere else? Can we live with that?

In this week's episode we visit Pergamum, where Satan has a throne. We hear Jesus's letter to the Church there and find that they are up against some pretty challenging stuff.

The Church Age

00:0000:00

In this message we will consider the expectations expressed by Jesus in Acts 1. He foresees his disciples bearing the message and the marks of his salvation. Jesus expects his disciples to take them to friends and neighbors, to communities and regions, to fearful places near and far. With new sight and power from the Holy Spirit we can courageously join in the fulfillment of our Lord’s vision.

In this episode we visit Smyrna and hear Christ's commendation of her perseverence and suffering for His sake.
