"He also said to them, 'This is what is written: The Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead the third day, and repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. And look, I am sending you what My Father promised. As for you, stay in the city until you are empowered from on high." Luke 24: 46-49
If you believe in Jesus, believe that He is the Messiah, and believe He did come to suffer and to save that which was lost, you are counted among those blessed to receive that which the Father has promised - the Holy Spirit. Spring always brings fresh new growth, and it is the time of year we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. Just look! Everything around you shouts Hallelujah as even the spring worships the one who gave it all for us.
I pray today for the Rodriguez family, for Laura's mother, for Olivia and Jeremiah. I pray for Barbara, Loren, Cynthia, Harriet, Carolyn, Becca, Mike and Pam. I pray for Tim and Michelle, Tim, Mike, Robert, Brent, Kevin, Randy. I pray that we can look up and see Jesus sitting at the right hand of the Father, and stand willing to proclaim His glory. I pray for our missionaries, Lord protect them as they serve You, in Jesus name.
