God’s Plan (1)

The book of Acts tells us about the start and the growth of God’s church. From the beginning, God had a specific plan for His church.
In our Bible Reading today, Jesus shared that plan with the apostles. Jesus told those men that they would be witnesses who would tell other people about Him. “You will tell people everywhere about me — in Jerusalem, in the rest of Judea, in Samaria, and in every part of the world” (verse 8b).
God’s plan for the church started in the city of Jerusalem. “Those who accepted what Peter said were baptized. On that day about 3000 people were added to the group of believers” (Acts 2:41).
God wants you to be a witness and tell other people about Jesus, too. Where do you start? You may not live in Jerusalem, but you do live in some town or city. Start with the people who live around you. Look for an opportunity today to share God’s love with a neighbor.
