In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach Acts 1:1 (NIV)
Luke gives us a new chance to examine all that Jesus starts. He draws our attention to the beginning of miraculous works. He directs us to the moment our Saviour Jesus Christ starts teaching us. He talks about beginnings. He makes no mention of an end. Could there be a gleam of Light here to illuminate our path today?
Whenever and wherever Jesus Is there is power for a fresh start. Jesus is the One Who bridges the gap placed by us between us and our God. This separation exists. Sadly for many it is held into place by our own choice. But could this be why Jesus is so vital to us? Is the Son of God just What is called for to take us past where we can go on our own? Is Jesus the One Person Who can begin a transformation in us? Is with Jesus and in His Company the only Place where this miraculous start can take place?
When we put ourselves where Jesus is we have endless possibilities open to us. Something wonderful and new is available to experience in our lives. Apart from Jesus we have no new beginning. Shall we seek a new beginning with Him now?
Nothing we gain on our own. Now we turn to You. We want to be made into new creatures that revel in the Presence of God. Let us begin today. Bring us close enough to Jesus that His Presence will spark our change. Give us a new and closer walk. Please Be this new Presence, the new Power and our new Purpose unto God now we pray!
