After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. (Acts 1:3 NIV)
А по муці Своїй Він ставав перед ними живий із засвідченнями багатьма, і сорок день їм з’являвся та про Божеє Царство казав. (Дії 1:3 Ukrainian)
O Lord our God ~ thank you dear Heavenly Father for richly blessing those who faithfully follow Jesus as Lord on this new Lord’s Day. Open our hearts in a fresh manner, so that we will see ourselves clearly as children of the most beneficent King ever to walk on the face of this earth. Bless your glorious Church with young servants who will be good and faithful to the leadership of Christ that is revealed to us in the Holy Scriptures. Humble those who have reached old age without ever encouraging a young person to follow Jesus into the next generation – if there is to be an earthly future for the Church of Christ beyond this First Day of the Week. Save us Lord from those who refuse to hear the many proofs that Christ gave regarding his bodily resurrection. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
