25 Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be writtenJohn 21:25
We can never stop counting the miracles and blessings of Jesus Christ in our lives. We can’t even mention every single thing that God has done for us, and the truth is, that there are many things that He’s done that we don’t even know about. Things God has protected us from while we were growing up as kids and the “bullets” that we dodged as adults – depending on what age you are. Because God has been protecting us, we are alive today!
This was the day after the resurrection and Jesus had already “threw down” on the grill – making fish for breakfast. Jesus reminded the disciples about everything He had done before His death and taught them many other things.
The question is why does God have to remind us? It’s because we sometimes lose sight of what God has done, because there’s more that we desire in life, but when Jesus Christ died on the cross that was more than enough for us. We didn’t even deserve that!
Our God is the God of grace, and that means, that He blesses us even though we didn’t earn the blessings, and He provides for us because He loves us as His children.
Jesus is Still Working
God is not limited to what country you live in, or to what you can bring to the table. He is our Heavenly Father, who richly supplies us with every good thing, if we delight in Him!
These blessings that He gives are not all based on money and material things, either. God knows what we don’t know we need, even before we need it. So therefore, He is intentional about everything He does.
The work of Jesus Christ did not end, when He rose from the dead and ascended to His thrown, but it continued through His apostles and now through His Church – the Body of Christ. We must continue His work and finish it – individually and collectively. Even so, Lord Jesus, come!
8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
9 After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. 10 As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. 11 “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!”Acts 1:8-9
If you don’t know Jesus as your personal Savior, then receive Him now. Your citizenship will be in heaven and you will become a child of God.
Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 11 As Scripture says, “Anyone who believes in him will never be put to shame.”
SAY this beginning PRAYER:
God I’m a sinner and right now I turn from my sins. I ask you to forgive my sins, that I may be right with you. I believe that Jesus Christ: lived, died and that He rose from the dead. Right now, I ask you Jesus to be my Savior and Lord, that I may have eternal life in heaven. Thank you God for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen!
