Connecting Centuries

It’s Tuesday evening here in LA (Lower Alabama) and I think I have little to say — I just wanted to put something on the page so you would perhaps gain a smile and know that you are in my thoughts and yes my prayers. 
I am grateful for each of you.
My Daily Prayer Journal has you listed as The White Stone Blog Readers. 

I list you that way because, well, because I don’t know all your names or even the States and Countries in which you live. 
Even so, I think of you and remember you before The LORD. 

I read Acts 24 today. 
Paul.
What an amazing brother in Christ we have. I don’t expect to live on the same street as he in the Father’s Eternal City but surely at some time in Eternity we will run into each other and I can thank him for his faithfulness and his love for JESUS and for penning the many letters I so enjoy in this 21st Century. 

Yes, my friends, this life we have in JESUS is just this real — When JESUS conquered sin, hell, death, and the grave — He connected His people, even 1st Century brothers and sisters with 21st Century brothers and sisters.  That great CONNECTION is coming to fruition. Yes, a face-to-face gathering that will never end. 

So tell me — isn’t that something to look forward to?
I think so.

Acts 3

I notice something about Peter (Kefa) in my reading of Acts 3 that I appreciate so much. His boldness. So bold to use the word YOU. 
I’m not bold like Peter. I wonder if I ever will be. 

You. 

Peter minced no words when he was delivering the sermon recorded for us in Acts 3. Not less than 20 times (CJB translation) he says YOU.
You know when YOU is necessary we ought to use it, don’t you think? 

Why was Peter so bold? 
Because he loved so greatly, I think AND he was empowered by Holy Spirit. 

What would our generations do to a man (or woman) like Peter?
I wonder how many Peter-like men or women there are in the world today?
I wonder how many would preach Acts 3 today? 

So, have you read Acts 3 today? Or another chapter of your choosing?
