Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

Jesus meets you where you are
Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and forgiveness of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.” -Luke 24:46-47
“But after I have been raised, I will go before you to Galilee.” -Matthew 26:32
“But go, tell His disciples – and Peter – that He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him, as He said to you.” -Mark 16:7; Matthew 28:7, 10
After His resurrection, Jesus began to gather His disciples where they were, to take them to where they were supposed to be! And He still does the same thing with us today!
The first disciples excitedly talked about Jesus when they met V. 33-35
What would our church be like if each time we gathered, each person was ready to share something they had learned about Jesus that week?! It might be one of those things that would position us for revival!
Did you know that when believers share what God is doing in their life, Heaven is listening in?
Jesus personally attends the first Lord’s day service V. 36-43
“God, who is rich in mercy, appointed a people to Himself out of the fallen race; for their sakes, and as a theatre whereon to display the wonders of His providence and grace.” -John Newton
For I delivered to you first of all tht which I also received: Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve. After that He was seen by over 500 brethren at once. -1 Cor. 15:3-6
Jesus had to die because of 4 things that God cannot do:
God cannot lie (He is the Truth)
God cannot sin (that would act against His glory)
God cannot let sin go unpunished (Because He is holy and just)
God cannot stop loving people (His creation)
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God set forth as a propitiation (atoning sacrifice) by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that HE MIGHT BE JUST AND THE JUSTIFER OF THE ONE WHO HAS FAITH IN JESUS. -Romans 3:23-26
He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; but he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him. -John 3:36
