Worship May 9 (Mom's Day)


You could say that John knew Jesus better than any of the other disciples. John and Jesus had a brotherly friendship love for each other. So devoted was John to Jesus that he was the only disciple the Bible mentions was present at Jesus' crucifixion.

John was so devoted, that even though there was no other one there, he was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day (empty church). In this quiet place he was free to focus on Jesus who had changed his life by Galilee years before. He wrote of His experience in Revelation 1: 9-11

I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet, saying, "Write in a book what you see, and send it to the seven churches:”
