Prodigal: God’s hands of creation are all around us.
Me: Praise God for what He gives us daily.
This is from the book The Revolution That Changed the World by Dr. David Jeremiah
Josh McDowell and Sean McDowell ask,
Do you believe for a moment that the early church could have survived for a week in its hostile surroundings if Jesus Christ had not been raised from the dead? The resurrection of the one on whom the church was founded was preached within a few minutes’ walk to Joseph’s tomb. As a result of the first sermon, in which Peter asserted that Christ had risen, 3,000 people believed (see Acts 2:41). Shortly thereafter, 5,000 more believed. Could all these converts have been made if Jesus had not been raised from the dead.
Sometimes numbers speak truth. Sometimes they represent what God is trying to do. God is working and you will begin to see, when you look around. May God remind you of His truth today.
For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death.
