We are excited about the life that we share.
As the Apostle Paul said, “Christ..is our life.” (Colossians 3:4)
For to us, “to live is Christ and to die is gain”. (Philippians 1:21)
Our joy is to share and declare this life together.
In the history of the Early Church (The Book of Acts) we read: They arrested the apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. “Go, stand in the temple courts,” he said, “and tell the people the full message of this new life.” (Acts 5:18-20
It was said of the early Christian church: “How they love one another!”
The love of Christ that filled the hearts of believers was evident in the way they lived. The same should be said about the church today when people are sharing His life together. (John 13:35)
Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
Those who observed the first Christians and “were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13). That is because Jesus rose from the dead and His living presence dwells in the hearts of believers through the Holy Spirit. People took note that these people had been with Jesus because Jesus was with them in all that they did through the Spirit. This same reality is to be experienced in the church today. Jesus is with us! He said, “I go with you even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20).
We are excited about sharing our experience of Christ with you.
