“Tertullian, who wrote around the year 200, declared in his Apology, ‘We are but of yesterday, and we have filled every place among you – cities, islands, fortresses, towns, marketplaces, the very camp, tribes, companies, palaces, senate, forum – we have left nothing to you but the temples of your gods.’ ”(James Boice)

Before Jesus ascended to heaven in Acts 1 he had lived before his disciples in his resurrection body for 40 days. His last will and testament was, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8 )

We have a choice to either bring blessing or cursing to those around us by our choice of words that we speak. Jesus said while he walked on this earth; “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” It’s the principle of ‘overflow’. So the question for us at a deeper level is: “What’s in our hearts?” So often we are influenced in our thinking by listening and even repeating ‘trash talk’ which only brings pain and suffering at others’ expense.

Captain America was not always the strong, awesome superman of his time. He actually, if you recall in the movie, was a scrawny little guy which the armed forces refused for military service. Something extraordinary happened to him and… in the world of Marvel Comics, anything is possible. He also had a pretty awesome shield… That’s the entertainment world. 

But why should the Church grow stronger and what does that mean? The missionary Paul commanded the Ephesian Church to ‘grow strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.’

Throughout life’s journey, we are exposed to the good, bad and the ugly in this fallen world. Unfortunately as Christian brothers and sisters, we are not exempt nor can we pick and choose our experiences in advance and contrary to popular belief, some events are outright outside of our control. To put a finer point on this notion, God has blessed us with the freedom of choice but unfortunately, we have very little control over the consequences and collateral damage inflicted on family and friends because of our choices. We see this over and over again as life happens to our family and friends on this journey in a world seemingly without end.
