Jesus’ resurrection and ultimately his ascension into heaven, can often feel like the end of his story. But for FORTY days after his resurrection, Jesus remained on earth appearing to many, teaching about the Kingdom of God, and instructing his people. Read Acts 1:6-11 What does this passage say about where Jesus is today? For what purpose did he give us the Holy Spirit? Filled with the Holy Spirit, what does Jesus call us to do until he returns, and what is one way you might seek to fulfill his instruction this week?
Adapted from Rachel Jones’ 5 Things to Pray series.
Father, when I am anxious help me to trust that you are: MY GOOD SHEPHERD Read Psalm 23:1-2 There are lots of reasons to feel vulnerable or anxious right now. But praise God that you are a sheep with a good shepherd. He knows you, and loves you, and is committed to caring for you. Thank him for the good things he’s given you – the “green pastures” and “quiet waters,” which show his kindness. Thank the Lord Jesus for being a shepherd who laid down his life to provide all that is needed for the salvation of his sheep.
LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, SHARE CHRIST. . .

April 4, 2021 – Easter Sunday
Philippians 2:1-11 (ESV) 3 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. 4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
