Scripture Reading from Acts 2:22–24, 29–33, 36   Kara Kosloskus

“Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know— this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

 

“Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne, he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption. This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing.

 

“Let all the house of Israel therefore know for certain that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified.”

While visiting a family member after surgery this week, I said hello to a woman recovering in the same room. She lit up as if she hadn’t had a visitor in weeks! We chatted a bit about her family and the importance of their love, and then I asked if I could pray for her. She responded with such gratitude and joy that I was immensely thankful I hadn’t missed the Lord’s prompting. Of course, things don’t always work out this way. Another Moody Church pastor asked a waitress if he could pray for her this week, and she said no. That’s rare but it does happen. And yet, in both circumstances, God’s love was extended and God’s purposes accomplished.

 

Undoubtedly, these stories could be multiplied many times over throughout our church family. Let us keep being faithful in the little things!

 

For His glory,
