Missionary Corner
Directly before Jesus ascended into heaven, the very last charge He gave His apostles was the command to take the gospel to all nations of the earth.  As we know, the apostles took this command very seriously and ministered in many lands faithfully until, tradition holds, they each met the death of a martyr.  They particularly witnessed of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

"And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus and great grace was upon them all."  Acts 4:33

Jesus Christ is truly "The Great Missionary Who Redeemed Mankind."
Not only did His atonement for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross of Calvary give us victory over spiritual death, but also through His resurrection He gave us victory over physical death.

Most numerous are the stories of Jesus'  actions and words that call us to be better people. One great example was His baptism when He allowed John The Baptist to baptize Him thus being the example for us to be baptized also.  Most of us remember the story of Martha and Mary where Jesus taught us to put the spiritual part of lives first.  And who could ever forget the supreme example of service Jesus gave us on the eve of His death when He washed the feet of his apostles.

Our Savior stands at the door of our hearts and spirits at all times.  
All we have to do is  humble ourselves,  open our hearts, and let Him enter!
