Of wind, tongues and fire

Good Morning. Wow! This is a powerful passage. . . "Lord, open our hearts and minds to understand Your Word this day. Amen"

Acts 2.1-13 - When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in… Continue

Good Morning. Forgiveness is God's invention for coming to terms with a world in which people are unfair to each other and hurt each other deeply. He began by forgiving us. And he invites us all to forgive each other. Lewis B. Smedes

While I am anxious to get to Acts chapter 2, it will have to wait another day; you'll see why. . .

It was early this morning when my telephone rang. Someone who had read "Thank you, Judas", yesterday's Morning Briefing, wanted to talk about it. You… Continue

Thank you, Judas

Acts 1:15-26 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) and said, "Brothers, the Scripture had to be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through the mouth of David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus— he was one of our number and shared in this ministry." With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.… Continue

✜You have been commissioned✜

Good Morning. Acts 1.9-10 After He said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and

a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood

beside them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into

heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."

After He had said what? Really,… Continue

I'm talking about the power, baby -

Good Morning.

So once again, they press Jesus to know if this would be the time He would set things straight in Israel--topple Rome's tyranny of the Jews, and set up His kingdom. Jesus replies, "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1.8 (in bold) I suppose this verse… Continue

An Adventure Story

What entices you to read a book? The title? The author? Subject matter? Someone's recommendation? Personal growth? Because it is the sequel to a book you loved? All of these and more are reasons why you are going to love the book of Acts. Fully named, "The Acts of the Apostles," the work takes up where the Gospel of Luke leaves off, and has even been referred to as the fifth gospel. I invite you to join me as we witness what came next for the band of men and women who followed Jesus once He… Continue
