Heartland 2014 power point

  1. 1. Devotions: How do we do devotions? Is the answer just blowin’ in the wind?
  2. 2. Introduction • Presenter: Brenda Nugteren • Why do this presentation? • Open with prayer
  3. 3. Blowin’ in the Wind lyrics by Bob Dylan How many roads must a man walk down Before you call him a man? How many seas must a white dove sail Before she sleeps in the sand? Yes, 'n how many times must the cannon balls fly Before they're forever banned? The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind, The answer is blowin' in the wind.
  4. 4. Yes, 'n how many years can a mountain exist Before it's washed to the sea? Yes, 'n how many years can some people exist Before they're allowed to be free? Yes, 'n how many times can a man turn his head, And pretend that he just doesn't see? The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind, The answer is blowin' in the wind.
  5. 5. Yes, 'n how many times must a man look up Before he can see the sky? Yes, 'n how many ears must one man have Before he can hear people cry? Yes, 'n how many deaths will it take till he knows That too many people have died? The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind, The answer is blowin' in the wind.
  6. 6. Pentecost Acts 2 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
  7. 7. 36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” 37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” 38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
