Happy Birthday!

Yep, next Sunday, June 4th, marks the 1,987th birthday of Jesus’ church 🙂

On that first day 1000s of devout men from every nation under heaven each heard Jesus’ apostles proclaim God’s good in Jesus in their own languages: “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spiritand that day about three thousand of them did (Acts 2:5-8, 38, 41) 🙂

Luke some 30+ years later wrote of them: They were continually devoting themselves to…

(1) the breaking of bread (Adoring Jesus as God)

(2) the Lord adding to their number day by day those who were being saved (Discipling to Jesus as Savior)

(3) the apostles’ teaching (Obeying Jesus as Lord)

(4) prayer (Praying through Jesus as mediator), and

(5) fellowship (Taking care of needs by Jesus).

All the same focuses our little bit of Jesus’ church still has in Jesus 🙂
