Imagine... Jesus has defeated death on the cross, has risen from the dead, has spent 40 days with you teaching you and giving instructions on how to be His witnesses to the world, and then He ascends into heaven before your very eyes.

The world is quiet, and there's a coolness to the air. Imagine Joseph's surprise as the angel of the Lord suddenly appears to him. Does he cry out in surprise? Does he humble himself and change his posture? What is going through his mind as he hears that his people's long-awaited Savior is finally arriving?   Read More

Today's God thought is an exert from the book Making All Things New, by Henri J. M.
