The Apostles were determined to speak the Good News to the people who would listen. Jesus Christ commissioned the Apostles to do the following; “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19-20).
The Apostles indeed went into all the cities and began to teach the people about the life of Christ. Peter & Silas, in Acts 5, were in Jerusalem, where the Sadducees and the religious leaders were angry with them because they “FILLED Jerusalem (City)” with their teachings and turned their hearts away from the false teaching of the Pharisees and Sadducees. Filling our city with the Gospel of Christ is at a critical point today. Just as the Lord called the Apostles to be witnesses in the cities, the nations, and the world, we too must carry on this calling and FILL THE CITY of Long Beach and the cities abroad with Acts of Service, Generosity, Love, Salvation, Kindness, Prayer, Grace, Peace, Unity, Hope, and GOD. Paul the Apostle aims to minister the Gospel where Christ has not been named (Romans 15:20), we too will do in 2021.
