Acts 2:17 "In the last days, God says, I will pour out my spirit on ALL people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams." (NIV)
Yesterday being Pentecost Sunday, at Gulf Coast Assembly of God this day took on a very SPECIAL meaning.
In our Vision Statement it reads: To be a church where people of ALL countries and colors feel at home.
On Pentecost Sunday, 2011, We welcomed 2 NEW Ministry families into Gods House. We welcomed our HAITIAN and RUSSIAN brothers and sisters. They will be holding their services at our church beginning this week. We now have American/Afro American, Spanish, Haitian and Russian Ministries.
The love and warmth was felt by all. God brought ALL His people together. During Praise and Worship a young Russian Girl came to the alter with her hands held high Praising Jesus and letting Him know SHE IS FREE TO LIVE FOR HIM. During our Special Music the song our Worship Leader sang one our young Haitian boys was in the aisle dancing. Total Freedom. A Freedom that only comes from JESUS CHRIST AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Jesus wants us to love everyone. Not those we "select" to love. He wants us to love everyone. He wants us to be in one accord. No division of race or ethenticity. Together He wants to be hand in hand with one another, claiming that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD AND SAVIOR.
In these last days, let us live the way Jesus wants us to live. In harmony with one another and embracing ALL PEOPLE.....
In Gods Love,
