Not Illegal: Joy

This past Saturday Greg spoke about Joy.
Main Verse: John 16:16-24 NIV 16 Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.” 17 At this, some of his disciples said to one another, “What does he mean by saying, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me,’ and ‘Because I am going to the Father’?” 18 They kept asking, “What does he mean by ‘a little while’? We don’t understand what he is saying.” 19 Jesus saw that they wanted to ask him about this, so he said to them, “Are you asking one another what I meant when I said, ‘In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me’? 20 Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy. 21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

1. Why is it important to remember that we don't work for God with just our own abilities?
2. What do you think about the phrase experiencing the Holy Spirit was both extraordinary and ordinary?
3. The speaker in the video said we need another Pentecost. What do you feel when you hear that?
Here is what I am asking. Would you take 10 days in the two weeks to pray specifically about what God has for us as a community. What he wants us to do as a community.
You can devote 10 minutes or 10 hours a day. I feel at this time that we don’t need to try create, another Pentecost but that we prepare for another one. Opening ourselves up to the direction and power of the Holy Spirit.
Here is the direction of prayer that I would like to encourage you to do with me.
Monday May 24 – Take time sit silently with God. Ask God what do you like about me?
Tuesday May 25 – Pray for those who are suffering directly from Covid-19 in our province. Pray for healing, recovery, wisdom to act safely, and protection.
Wednesday May 26 – Ask God to examine your heart and to point out anything that needs to be removed.
Thursday May 27 – Pray that God will help the people you don’t like or that you are mad at. Proclaim forgiveness where possible.
Friday May 28 – Pray for friends or family who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus.
Each day we will be posting a prayer video on our social media platforms and our YouTube channel.
