Thought for the day
God is doing amazing things among Iranians. This entry is based on Elam's Easter Newsletter
Mojhde writes: "One of my favourite verses in the whole Bible is Acts 1:3 where, ‘after his suffering,’ Jesus ‘presented himself alive’ to his disciples.
To that first generation of his followers, Jesus tangibly and powerfully showed himself to be alive – risen from the dead! What a glorious Easter truth.
Another glorious truth is this: Jesus is still ‘presenting himself alive’ to people today. All across Iran, Jesus is presenting himself alive to ordinary people in extraordinary ways, and many are surrendering their lives to Him.
By God’s grace, this recent Easter many thousands of new Iranian believers celebrated the risen Jesus for the first time. Praise God for His amazing work.
And its happening in Europe too ......
The pictured Bible belongs to Sanaz, a new Iranian believer in a refugee camp in Europe. As you can see, she has a real hunger for the Word of God! Sanaz has loved studying her Bible ever since she came to faith. Devouring sermons and books that help her to understand God's Word, she takes careful notes. So when other refugees ask questions about Jesus, Sanaz is ready to share. Many now want their own copies of the Scriptures.
Prayer for the day
Pray with ELAM: That Jesus continues to present himself alive to many more in Iran and beyond (especially here in Britain); That more lives will be transformed through encounters with the resurrected Christ
