410

So ... yesterday we were all challenged to commit to read through the Bible in 2017. And 410 (FOUR HUNDRED AND TEN) of you amazing CUMCers signed up to do so! YES!! I am SO EXCITED to see what God will do in our lives as we consistently place ourselves in His presence and listen to His voice!!

Every few days in 2017, I will place a thought or two from that day's scripture readings here on this site. My thinking is: (1) it will help me stay committed; and (2) it hopefully will bless and encourage someone else to stay committed as well.

Here's a quick thought from one of today's passages:

Acts 1:1-11
"'Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?' He [Jesus] said to them: 'It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by His own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you: and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.'" (vv6-8)

God's going to do His thing (return) in His time.
I simply need to do my thing (witness) now.
