Life Through Jesus

Paul and Silas were beaten and thrown in jail for casting out unclean spirits in the name of Jesus. In their suffering, they exhibited joy and trusted God. God saved them. As a result, the jailer and his household believed in Jesus and were baptized (Acts 16:16-34). We can rejoice because this same God, revealed through Jesus, is above all other gods (Psalm 97). He will come again in power and offers life to all that come to him (Revelation 22:12-14, 16-17, 20-21). Until that time, Jesus desires his children to walk together in unity and love (John 17:20-26).

Presence, Power, and Peace

Through the Holy Spirit, God opens hearts to have faith in Jesus and be baptized into His name. Like Lydia, we should share God’s grace with our own households and offer our resources to those in need (Acts 16:9-15). Throughout history, God has blessed His people and made known His salvation to all the earth (Psalm 67). He has promised to completely restore all of Creation (Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5). Until that day, Jesus Christ has left us with the hope of his return and has promised the presence of the Holy Spirit (John 14:23-29). While on earth, Jesus demonstrated his power to heal and restore (John 5:1-9). We praise God for opening the way of salvation through Jesus and wait in the light of His resurrection.

See, I Am Making All Things New

God has opened the way of salvation for all. Through the Holy Spirit, life and freedom are given to all who believe in Jesus (Acts 11:1-18). Let the whole earth praise God for raising the horn of salvation through Jesus Christ (Psalm 148). He is the Alpha and Omega who promises to quench our thirst and make all things new (Rev 21:1-6). Life and resurrection have been promised by the one who is faithful. Because of this, we should love one another, as Christ loved us (John 13:31-35).

Our Merciful Shepherd

“Through Christ, we are able to do more than we could in our own strength, just as Peter worked a miracle in Joppa (Acts 9:36-43). The Lord is our shepherd (Revelation 7:9-17); he takes care of all our needs (Psalm 23) and offers us eternal life (John 10:22-30).”
