“Those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand people were added.  They continued to hold firmly to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of the bread, and to the prayers.  Awe came over every soul, and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles.  All the believers were together and had everything in common. They were selling their possessions and property and were distributing the proceeds according to what anyone needed.  Day after day, with one mind, they were devoted to meeting in the temple area, as they continued to break bread in their homes. They shared their food with glad and sincere hearts, as they continued praising God and being viewed favorably by all the people.”  Acts 2:41-47

An intense game of tag on the playground can’t be played without excitement.  Do you remember what that feels like?  Can you feel the thrill of outrunning the person trying to tag you?  Did you have what it took to make it all the way to the end without getting caught? 

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the afflicted.  He sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release for those who are bound, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance for our God, to comfort all who mourn.”  (Isaiah 61:1-2)

When it comes to excuses, the police have heard it all.   Some excuses are legitimate, others are funny, and some are pathetic.  People will do just about anything to get out of a ticket.

“Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where he was tempted by the Devil for forty days.”  (Luke 4:1-2)

Having attended two funerals in the last week, it’s hard to ignore the reality of death.  Your impending death suddenly becomes every bit as real as the open casket sitting there or the tears of those gathered to say goodbye.   No matter how hard you try to ignore it, our time is coming too.
