only Jesus

Jesus is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven
given to mankind by which we must be saved.
Acts 4:11-12
Two ministries that are near and dear to my heart are about to begin their summer outreach programs.  The last week in May, God's Word is going to begin to be poured into the hearts and minds of children and adults alike across the US for the summer months.
What I love about both ministries is that the name of Jesus is spoken...is called upon...is praised!  Be involved with either (or both) ministries and you will experience Jesus in a way like never before in your life.  An true encounter with Jesus will ruin life as you know it.  Then as you experience Jesus, you'll be thankful it did!  Others will see the difference, too...and want it for themselves.
But only when it's Jesus they see.
If it's anything but Jesus, it will wear off and people will wander away empty and still lost.
I am encouraged by what I read in Acts today.
I am convicted by what I read in Acts today.
What Jesus does makes the difference in peoples' lives.  It's all about Him.
How well I reflect His light is dependent upon how much time I spend with Him each day.  And, each day I could always do better.
My gift today is the blessing of being given the opportunity to be involved with two Christ centered ministries over the past several years.  I do not know why He chose me to be involved, but I am so grateful He did!
My prayer is that people will want a personal relationship with Christ as they see Him in those of us serving in His name.
God is so good!
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
Acts 4:13
