Today we will talk about how the gospel is passed from generation to generation. This transmission of the gospel is of utmost importance – for the salvation of your kids & grandkids, for the well-being of the church, and for the plan of God for history. And every single person here today has a vital part to play in this process!

Nothing could be more important or more exciting. Don’t miss the boat! As you listen to the message today, ask yourself some questions like these:

What does God want me to say ‘Yes” to today?

What barriers or excuses have I put in the way?

Would my life be better or worse if I gave myself fully to Jesus & his cause?

The Secret of The Ten Days http://rosewoodchurchmedia.com/2017/05/28/the-secret-of-the-ten-days/ Sun, 28 May 2017 17:58:04 +0000 http://rosewoodchurchmedia.com/?p=2640 Today we stand between two vitally important church holidays: Ascension Day and Pentecost. Ascension Day was that day, 40 days after Easter, when Jesus was taken up to heaven. Pentecost Sunday was 10 days later, the day when the exalted Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit on all the believers, launching the global mission and resulting in the explosive growth of the church. In today’s message, entitled “The Secret of the Ten Days,” Pastor Brink will help us understand some of the connections between these two days. The focus will be on sustained communal prayer and how that is connected to the power of the Holy Spirit still today.

In today’s story, we meet Jesus as the builder of the new community, also called “the church” and “the family of God.” We will note several different responses to Jesus, and we will see how our convictions about Jesus shape both our identity in this world and our destiny in the world to come.
