Great services last night. The band started the night singing "I am free." At the conclusion of the worship set, the band sang an original song called "Portrait." It was written out of a missions trip to New Orleans to help Katrina victims. As the band sang the song, video of Speed The Light vehicles in action flashed on the screen. It was very moving. At the conclusion, an offering was received for Speed The Light. Speed The Light is the youth missions arm of the Assemblies of God. It provides transportation and communication for missionaries all around the world.
Last night's message was on being a community of compassion. Jason took us on a journey from Peter's denial to the day of Pentecost. He said that in the beginning that Peter was selfish. When he received the Holy Spirit, he became selfless. In fact, the whole early church did. Acts 2:44-45 (NIV) states "All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need."
Following the message, there was a call for salvation and a call to be filled or refilled with the Holy Spirit. The majority of our students went down. It was awesome to see them go after God.
It was another great night.
