Reflective Moment ‘Nothing Without Him’

power

Jesus prepared His followers for their mission. over forty days after His resurrection. Jesus taught his disciples that He was the promised Messiah, that He died on the cross for the sins of the world, {which includes you and me}, that He was raised from the dead on the third day, that He was exalted at the right hand of The Father, and that He would return to establish, Gods’ victory in a final and visible way.

Meanwhile, Salvation from God’s judgement could only be found by confessing faith In Him {Acts 4 verse 12}.  This is a clear message Our Lord and Our Friend left with us, but He would not leave us alone to spread the message.

At a time when His followers were both powerless and defeated after the crucifixion, between the resurrection and the ascension, Our Lord and Our Friend reminded them the message of the Gospel didn’t originate with them, it was about Him. He also promised them and us His presence and power though The Holy Spirit. 

The message we are to convey and witness, is never anything about us, It is always about, Him, and how much He loves .

God Bless.
