I leave tomorrow to the Ukraine with our mens mission team, and we’ll be out of internet access for most of the week. Unfortunately this means I probably wont be able to post any updates and daily devotionals to my blog, but perhaps I’ll be able to post a few on my personal FaceBook or the Hammersmith Congregation FaceBook. Do “friend” and “like” these if you are on FB and I’ll stay in touch. Alternatively also follow on Twitter.

Luke 4:33-37 Now in the synagogue there was a man who had a spirit of an unclean demon. And he cried out with a loud voice, 34 saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!”
35 But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” And when the demon had thrown him in their midst, it came out of him and did not hurt him. 36 Then they were all amazed and spoke among themselves, saying, “What a word this is! For with authority and power He commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.” 37 And the report about Him went out into every place in the surrounding region.
This coming Sunday is Pentecost Sunday in the global church calendar. This is the Church’s birthday! This past Sunday I preached on “Preparing for Your Pentecost” as part of our current “The Spirit” series. We had the most incredible service and I was totally overwhelmed by the time I got to preach. But I believe it was a real word in season – if you want to know what the Holy Spirit loves, values, prioritises and empowers, this message will help you to know His heart and receive His fullness in your life.

Luke 4:28-30 So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, 29 and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. 30 Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.
Luke 4:22-24 So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, “Is this not Joseph’s son?” 23 He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’” 24 Then He said,“Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country.
