I write this to you, Theophilus, knowing how much you love God,
As you look back at all that was written about this man Jesus.
How he taught, healed, challenged, and loved the people.
Many did no understand his death, but He came back to life.
There is great evidence. Many people saw Him!
Miracles of his Kingdom have come.
Like promised Holy Spirit, to those who were waiting.
The Spirit of God is on the move - starting a new thing.
Life is different now. We no longer fear death.
In the great surrender we are reborn in the resurrection.
This is the new beginning.
