Peter (Acts 1)

“Beloved, come to him who calls you a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own . . .”

It is refreshing to imagine that Peter is actually directing his words to ordinary folks like ourselves.

Lord God, help us to trust in the power and the presence that resides within each and every one of us. The Holy Spirit is just as anxious to “fall upon us” as she was the early Christian community.
