1 In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach 2 until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.3 After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.
There is an immortality of presence and power. Jesus not only left an immortal name and influence; he is still alive and still active. He is not the one who was; he is the one who is.
With his presence and under his power, we can fulfill his vision. This is all we need to kick off our mission and to start our ministries. We thank God that he doesn’t leave us alone but partnership with us in all areas of our works.
Let us thank our Lord Jesus Christ for his presence.
Prayer of the day
Oh Lord, in your presence, I will not feel alone nor feel no peace. By your power, I can overcome my weakness. Therefore, I know that I can’t live without you and I must belong to the Church that carries on the life of Christ. Lord, please change my life by staying in you and by obeying your instructions.
