The Great 50 Days of Easter Day- 31

June 4th, 2014 by Christopher Caudle

Scriptures for today.
Psalm 61, 62 · Leviticus 16.20-34 · 1 Thessalonians 5.1-11 · Psalm 68.1-20 · Matthew 6.7-15

Prayer for today.

Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ have overcome death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: grant that, as by your grace going before us you put into our minds good desires, so by your continual help we may bring them to good effect; through Jesus Christ our risen Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Question for today.

Those who witnessed the resurrection of Jesus Christ not only told one another, they told everyone else as well.  This turning outward was inspired by their conviction that Christ was risen and that His rising changed everything. What aspect of Jesus’ life might nudge you to “go public” with your faith?

Below are two “doors” you might open to see how others have responded. If someone finds a charismatic door, send it along. If you watch the door most unfamiliar to you,  and I hope you will, imagine what it felt like for the first hearers of the apostles as they heard this world-changing  news, and felt the love of God break through.
