Easter Everyday?

500 Witnesses.

Do we know the Lord Jesus as our personal Saviour and the Lord of our New Lives?

Then like those first 500 witnesses, who saw Jesus risen from the dead everyday was Easter for them! Because they made up the foundation of what we today call Ekklesia or Church!

The death and resurrection of the Jewish Messiah made an impact on them, who did not fear or care what the world thought of them! After the empowering at Pentecost fifty days later, they went on to spread and share the Goods News message of the Gospel telling people that if they repented and turned to God their lives would be changed, just like ours?

John 21:17,  Acts 2:22,  4:12,  Romans 5:11, 15,  1 Corinthians 6:11,  2 Corinthians 4:10-11.

Spreading Out. Part-Two.

We have work to Do.

Our Testimony may not seem much to us, but to a lost world and the societies around us it is a God send. All kinds of people today around us are living in despair and darkness and many want answers to what ‘is life all about?

Jesus is the only answer and we who believe in Him should know this and want to share it with the outsiders. Witnessing ones faith is easy, we can talk about what God does for us every day in the simplest of things.

John 4:23,  Acts 26:18,  Colossians 1:6.

Don’t leave….wait here.

These are the final words of Jesus before his ascension back to heaven to his disciples. They are told to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promised comforter, the pouring out of the Holy Spirit to empower the Church. Acts 1:3-5, Luke 24:44-53.

Waiting is a hard game, if you wait to long for something naturally you start to doubt.

But Jesus gave them 10 days to wait and they kept themselves busy during that period. Acts 1:6-12.

Much later those same disciples were able to give a powerful testimony of all of these tremendous events for us. 1 John 1:1-10.
