Through the work of the apostles, many God-signs were set up among the people, many wonderful things done. They all met regularly and in remarkable harmony on the Temple porch named after Solomon. But even though people admired them a lot, outsiders were wary about joining them. (Acts 5:12-13)
a Book thought... from Jesus the Fool by Michael Frost
Too many people have written off Jesus as some soft guru, a man with a perpetual smile on his face, who wandered around Palestine kissing babies and patting happy children on the head. (p4 Frost)
a Dave thought...
This morning we attended Port Macquarie Salvos with about 200 others which was a real treat. As there were a dozen guys in attendance from The Salvation Army Miracle Haven Recovery Services Centre in Morisset NSW we were very fortunate to hear their life transformation stories. Two of these guys shared amazing stories of living in an addictive trapped lifestyle but since attending Miracle Haven they have found Jesus and their lives have been incredibly changed. It was great reminder for me that no matter how tragic our past God continues to change lives, and once again I am proud to be part of a movement that invests in helping people through the toughest times in their lives.
