A Word from Pastor John
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Acts 1:8 NLT
I love this verse in the book of Acts because it describes the Christian calling so accurately.
The Bible says here that we will receive power that will enable us to become witnesses for Jesus. The power of the Holy Spirit resides within us in many different ways. God gives us power as we pray over people for healing and restoration. God gives us power as we choose to live a life of integrity and holiness. God gives us power to share our story with people and invite them to church.
The Christian life should be driven by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The end result is that we would function as witnesses for Jesus. When people see our lives, and the way that we live, people should naturally be drawn to Jesus.
My prayer for our church today is that God would continue to fill us with the power of the Holy Spirit. And that we may continue to be witnesses right here in our community to the amazing things that God is doing in our lives.

Korean pastor creates Bible read-along YouTube channel
A local church in Korea has stepped up its focus on spiritual training for its members during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Daekwang Church of the Nazarene in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, has been encouraging its members to read the Bible as part of their home faith training. They came up with the idea of â€œ301 Days of Bible Readingâ€ as there are a total of 301 days in 2021 excluding local holidays with a plan of reading three to four chapters a day.
The program started on 2 January and will last until the end of the year. Local church members and their families are actively engaging and participating online.
Currently, the Good Dad Youtube Channel has 130 episodes and is now in the book of Judges. As a result, their YouTube channel has garnered a steady stream of viewers and positive feedback.
â€œI encourage you to read through the Bible,â€ a viewer commented. â€œMy kids went to study too after watching it together. I was challenged after watching Du-yeon and Se-yeon.
The family behind these videos is Pastor Park Hyunmyung, an associate pastor at Daekwang Church. He produces these videos together with his wife, Choi Bitnae, and two young kids, Park Du-yeon and Park Se-yeon.
For non-Korean viewers and readers, Pastor Park adds subtitles to his videos. Both Korean and English verses are added so even younger children can easily follow. He will continue to produce these videos until the end of the year. His prayer is that this ministry will encourage more families to read and study the Bible together.
â€œI thank God for giving me a family I can face every day at a time when lockdown and restrictions have become a daily routine,â€ Park said. â€œI hope that many people will enjoy the blessing of reading and studying the Bible with their families.â€

Wired for sound
Back in the days before many churches had wireless microphones, a preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mic, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mic cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again. After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered,"If he gets loose, will he hurt us?"
