On the 50th day (Pentecost) after the Resurrection, the Holy Spirit comes down on the Disciples. They are empowered. God builds his church to this day through his empowered people.
Paul prays that the eyes of our hearts may be enlightened. He prays that we develop a deeper appreciation for our ascended Lord Jesus. He is the head of the church and of the universe. In his hands we are safe!
The Areopagus was a place where the “good ol’ boys” of Athens met. Former mayors, senators and men of influence were all part of it. These all listened to Paul.
Stephen was stoned to death because of his faith in Jesus. The hatred for God’s love in Christ did not cease with the Crucifixion. On the contrary, it increased. Every year tens of thousands of Christians die a martyr’s death.
Christ’s death on the cross enables and inspires us to live as if we were dead to sin! The Holy Spirit teaches us to walk in God’s ways.
While these two Disciples on the road to Emmaus thought Christ had not been raised from the grave, they were afraid even to walk at night! When Jesus revealed himself to them, they knew they had eternal life. All else is inconsequential.
Our Easter celebration has only just begun! Christ is risen! There’s no doubt about it! God has our priceless inheritance in store for us in heaven which will never perish, spoil or fade away. What a grand and glorious day that will be, when we receive our eternal inheritance in heaven

Jesus is the king we need for now and for eternity.
“There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus,” Paul writes. Why not? Because God has set us free.
The Apostle Paul teaches us that when Christ comes into our lives, things change. There is a great conversion. The before and after are clearly perceptible. As children of the light, we expose the unfruitful works of darkness and produce good works bathed in Christ’s light.
Grace is undeserved love. Paul instructs us in the pure grace of God. While we were ungodly, Christ died for us. This is encouraging. In our task of proclaiming the Gospel. Christ died for all!
The essence of the Gospel – Good News for Us – is God’s love. Jesus has an audience of one, but the Good News is for all!
Here we have the origin of all that is wrong with us: greed, envy and disobedience. We also see God’s solution. While cursing the serpent (Satan), God promises a savior, the woman’s offspring.
