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:
"'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.
