Readings for the Week
5/21/2017 - 5/28/2017


Readings for Sunday, May 21:

Acts 8:5-8, 14-17: Philip carried the good news to Samaria.  He performed many miracles.  Peter and John laid hands on these people in Samaria and they received the Holy Spirit. 

1 Pt 3:15-18:
Always worship God in your hearts.  Jesus died for sins and just once for all who are sinners to lead us to God. 

Jn 14:15-21: Jesus promises to ask for a Paraclete for those who love Him.  The world will not accept or understand the Paraclete. All who obey the commandments show their love for God and will be loved in return. 

Today’s Message - The people of Samaria come to worship the Lord and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  It is this same Spirit who leads us into the truth.  In the Body, Jesus was put to death; in the Spirit, He was raised to life.  We are called to this same glory.
