“But the accusations made against him [Paul] weren’t any of the crimes I expected.
Instead, it was something about their religion and a dead man named Jesus, who Paul insists is alive.”
~Porcius Festus, governor of Palestine
May our speech never be such in which it communicates that Jesus of Nazareth is a dead guy of the past. But rather that he is a powerful Presence now, alive and well.
May indeed our very lives portray that Jesus is alive and reigning with the Father and Holy Spirit.
May our bodies be vessels through which flows freely the Holy Spirit so that those around us witness Jesus’ Life active in the world here and now.
