Ascension, 7th Sunday of Easter, Acts 7:54-60
When you feel like a Saul, go back to that same Jesus. You’ll see that He loves even Sauls, He gives you the peace to die like Stephens, and more than anything, He gives you the love to live like Jesus.
Ascension Day, Ephesians 1:16-23
So no matter what, no matter if you live or die, if you’re sick or healthy, if your life seems to go forward or seems to go backward, no matter what atrocious or awesome thing you hear in the news, trust that your Risen and Ascended Lord Jesus remains in control of all things, guiding, directing, ruling, and reigning for the good of His people, for you, to bring you into His eternal kingdom.
7th Sunday of Easter
God has picked us dirty, rotten, filthy specimens for His home. God has chosen to perfectly love us with a selfless, limitless, boundless, giving, and unconditional love. Focus on that. Think about those things. And live in response.
