Today's reading: Luke 24:1-53
After Jesus' resurrection he appears to the disciples. At first they're startled and a little fearful, but in typical fashion, Jesus lovingly and caringly through his actions and words, reveals to the disciples their mission going forward. Luke tells us that Jesus opened their minds so that they could understand the Scriptures, and that Jesus put forth this directive: "that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in his name to all nations" (vs. 47). As 21st century Christ-followers, we are subject to that same directive, which means we should be telling people about God's love for them by making Christ known to everyone around us.
Is it your practice to tell people you know and those you encounter about Jesus? What does you making Jesus known look like? I know I ask this often, but it's important--Who do you know that needs to hear about Jesus and His love for them? Will you talk with them this week, because it could change their life forever? Tami
