To be known as Jesus’ disciples through actions that are motivated by love for God, for each other, and for those who suffer spiritually and physically.
Brother Leo Cloman joins us this morning from the East Main Street Church of Christ to share the lesson. The primary text is taken from Luke 24:1-12 about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. No matter what we may be going through, there is always the morning!
The early church was devoted to the teaching of the apostles, the fellowship, the breaking of bread, and the prayers. This combination of characteristics began to create a culture among the 3,000 new Christians that reflected the work of the Holy Spirit. They were characterized by unified heart of concern for each other and to the poor to the point that they gave up their possessions and sold property while the apostles continued to couple their miraculous healings with eyewitness testimonials characterized by ‘signs and wonders’. It is hard to imagine a more exciting time in the life of the church.
They devoted themselves to… prayer. Today we take a moment to attempt to see Jesus’ prayer life through the eyes of His disciples: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Perhaps by realizing how important prayer was to the life of Jesus we can also find greater significance for it in our lives as we strive to be like Him in every way. To help us grow in prayer, there is a neat acronym that can be helpful:
A – Adoration
C – Confesstion
T – Thanksgiving
S – Supplication
