What if you had lived at the time of Jesus?
Have you ever thought of what it might be like if you had lived in Bible times and you found out about Jesus for the first time?
Living in the time of Jesus
This week we take a trip back in time to experience what it might have been like to hear Jesus preach and see him heal the sick people who came to him.
And imagine that because you become such a faithful follower, Jesus picks you to be one of the 70 disciples he sent out to preach and heal the sick.
But when you come back to report the amazing things you have done, Jesus tells you the most important thing to remember, that your name is written in heaven.
What the heck does that mean?
In this week’s episode, I share a few ideas about what your name being written in heaven means and how empowering it is.
Have a great week.
