And with great power the apostles were giving witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and abundant grace was upon them all.
Of all the religions of the world, none of the founders ever came out of their grave, but one; Jesus Christ.
When we freely share this great news about Jesus, God confirms our message with signs and wonders. He doesn’t do this to thrill the hearers or make that messenger a great name.
God wants to show us His favor, His goodwill, His grace. He wants to increase our trust in Him. To train us to turn to Him in all things. To teach us He is to be trusted in all circumstances at all times.
His purpose is to draw us into personal relationship with Him. To cause us to lift our praise to Him and honor Him for who He is; our loving Father who sent His own Son to make a way for us to be with Him forever. Hallelujah!
Father God, give us opportunities
to speak Your truth
when it’s convenient
and when it’s not;
that You might be glorified
in Your Son.
