The Revd Michael Pullan gives us this April 18th
- Luke 24 v36b-49, Acts 3 v12-19, I John 3 v1-7.
3 readings show us snapshots as the early church got
going and how groups were important in this. During
the covid pandemic we have recognised the value of groups,
whether family, friends or the wider community and have
tried to keep in touch with them in a variety of ways.
Luke 24, Jesus appears to the small group of disciples,
assures them He is alive and not a ghost (He ate food).
He then spent time teaching them and reminding them
of all He had previously taught them and gave them power
to understand the scriptures, regarding resurrection,
repentance and forgiveness, which would be their task
in the future.
Acts 3, Peter addresses a large group of Jews and Gentiles
and stresses the importance and power of Jesus' message,
its links with the prophets and its ability to heal
people through their faith. He urges people to repent
and offers them forgiveness in Jesus' name, stressing
they were witnesses of Jesus' resurrection (all as instructed
in Luke 24).
1 John3, John addresses a large Gentile group and offers
them assurance that they are God's children, can know
His love is for everyone and can be like him
and as groups we are called to demonstrate in our lives
and share in word (testimony) the same message of hope
and salvation to a spiritually needy world. Being a
groupie within the church may/ought to help us individually
to do so.
