A video message by Pastor Reid Matthias on 16 May 2021.
Stay put. Don’t move. Wait.
Do you know how easy it is to sit still? Especially when you’re excited about something? Or if you’re frightened? Maybe all the time? Humankind is designed to move, yet over one hundred times in the Bible, we are reminded to quiet ourselves, sit still and wait for the Lord.
Why is this?
Why did the Spirit take a week to show up after the Ascension? Was it a test?
This week as we continue our theme on Stay, read through Luke 24:44-52 and Acts 1:4-8. Put yourself in the shoes of a disciple. Write down some thoughts about how you would have felt, what you would have thought and what you would have liked to do.
Then, on Sunday, we'll share some of those thoughts.
