Shout with joy. Alleluia! The Lord is coming.
Sunday, November 29, 2009 marks the first Sunday of Advent.
Read: Luke 21:28
Luke was not one of the original apostles. Did you ever wonder how he prepared himself for writing his Gospel?
Think about it.
He prepared just like ever participant in the Arise program has prepared and is preparing. Luke studied. He prayed. He opened himself up to the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. He wanted to learn, to understand. He prayed for wisdom and knowledge--just like we did and do. He talked to others, learning the stories of the original apostles. He read scripture. He discussed. He questioned, and he prayed more.
You didn't know there were Arise Together in Christ Sessions back then did you?
