“In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen.”
Can you imagine what it was like for Theophilus after reading the gospel account of Luke knowing it was only half the story, that there was more to come? The good news of Jesus’ life and death, resurrection and ascension had reached him, but what was Theophilus to make of the growing group of Christians across the Roman world?
Theophilus felt his soul coming awake, hungering for more of God’s presence; not only to hear the story of Jesus but to also have His Spirit engulf his life.
Way to Worship
Invite the Holy Spirit to fill the space around you, to envelop you from the worries and wonders of the world. Call to the Spirit of Jesus to guide your time of worship over the next 15 days in a special way.

Way to Wait
Take a few minutes to try and remember what life was like before you knew Jesus as your savior, before you’d heard His good news and felt His redeeming love.
Still your heart, all that concerns you, and fix your mind only on God’s presence in your life. With all earnestness, sit in waiting for His presence. Find a place to be by yourself and turn off your cell phone.
