Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ. Acts 5:42 (NIV)
They have left their own pursuits to stand in the Presence of the Son of God! They have walked with Jesus. It has changed them. They cannot contain the resulting Spirit that flows into them. They never stop proclaiming the Good News! Is this our story too?
Many congregations file dutifully in each week. They may be a little uplifted but soon they are walking back out that door. They go about their way. They may ask another to convert to their beliefs. But have they ever truly met Jesus? Have they sat with Him and listened for words that pierce their souls? Have their hearts ever soared as God´s Presence and Spirit overcomes them?
We can see the effect in those who pressed on in their walk with Christ. They never stop proclaiming the joy of knowing Jesus. Where are we today? Will we look to our own affairs? Or is there a deep pull within our hearts to draw near? Shall we bow in the Presence of the Son now? Where will that encounter leave us?
Grant us with Your Presence today! Let us come before You! Let our lives be changed! Let our hearts be overwhelmed. Let the world around us know that we have come to walk with our Savior! Let us never stop proclaiming what we have found in You! Let us forever share the thrill of being with You in a loving and living relationship we pray!
