He’s Still Here Doing What He Always Does

Exodus 33-34, Psalm 16 and Acts 9

He’s still there.  The book is called the Acts of the Apostles and we’re going to see a lot of the apostles in the days ahead, especially Paul and Peter.  But the person we’re going to see the most of is Jesus.  

This book could be called the Acts of Jesus because He’s still there, with his followers. Doing what he always does.   But now he’s moving beyond Israel and is outside the city of Damasus.  He’s about to do what he always does.  He’s about to overwhelm one of his enemies with light, and forgiveness and love.  He will blind Saul and transform him into Paul.  

He’s  on his way up into another upper room, where people are mourning the loss of a generous-hearted woman Tabitha. Peter’s there in that room, for sure.  But the writer of this book doesn’t want you to miss the fact that Jesus is there too.   If this moment sounds familiar, it should, because it echoes back to Jesus in the upper room of Jairus with his little 12 year old daughter, a girl Jesus called Talitha.  Both Tabitha and Talitha had passed from death to life, but both girls experienced the hand of God raise them up!     He’s still doing what he always does.

 He’s bringing life where there was once death. 

He’s with us here today too - doing now what he has always done.  He’s overwhelming our resistant hearts with light, forgiveness and love, opening eyes to see more and more, just who he is.   the way he did with Paul.  

He’s also entering into the upper rooms in our hearts, where there is death, and a need for resurrection and hope.  There he takes us by the hand and says words like, It’s time to get up.  It’s time to live.  He’s still there, doing what he does.   He’s bringing his light and forgiveness and love. And he’s doing this all around the world, even today.

In fact He’s in the room with you now. Hear his word of forgiveness and love,  let him take you by the hand and raise up that which was dead.
