Readings for Easter Sunday
Acts 10.34-43, Colossians 3.1-4; and Matthew 28.1-10
Thursday 20 April
It was all very well for Peter and the other disciples. They lived in a world where most people believed in God and were happy to talk about religion. Today most people haven’t got a clue about who Jesus was or what he is supposed to have done. Where do we even start? Well, we all have a story to tell and experiences to share – about what we did at the weekend or what we have been reading lately. Peter says that God “has commanded us to preach to the people” – we may not be so sure about that but can we not find ways to talk to others about what our faith means to us and could mean to them?
Question: In a world where people are reluctant to listen to experts and are suspicious of authority, how can we play our part to help others discover what we have found in Jesus Christ?
Prayer: Lord, help me to share with someone today a little of who you are and what you have done for me.
