Sunday, May 15, Fifth Sunday of Easter

By its very nature, Christianity is conservative. It clings to the truths we have received from the Lord, through those who have gone before us. At the same time, though, God is continually “making everything new” (Rev 21:5)! No wonder that we, like Peter in Acts 11, needs help adjusting to the dramatic changes that God’s plan set before him. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit who Jesus promised in John 16, guides Christ’s people into all truth. As we too confront the need to change, we too can rely on that promise

Readings:

Acts 11:1–18
Revelation 21:1–7
John 16:12–22

Music:

He is Exalted
Alas and Did My Saviour Bleed
Lift High the Cross
Salvation Unto Us Has Come
By Grace I’m Saved
