NO WORRIES WEEK

Tired?  Stressed? Overwhelmed?

You don’t have to be. Here’s what Jesus said:

Was evangelism a priority for Jesus? Let’s look at his first and last recorded words to his disciples:

So they woke him up. “Don’t you care if we drown?” they asked him.

Who Is This Guy?

Jesus asked lots of questions. One day he asked his disciples this one:

Who do the crowds say I am?

Happy Ascension Day!

GUWGcloudAfter his suffering, he showed himself to these men 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)

Today is Ascension Thursday, a day celebrated by Christians all over the world on the 40th day after Easter. Why all the fuss?

Here’s why …

After his resurrection, Jesus spent the next forty days convincing the disciples that he was alive and telling ’em about God’s kingdom. Here were his last recorded words on this planet:
