Acts 1:3. To the same apostles also, after his suffering, he presented himself alive with many convincing proofs. He was seen by them over a forty-day period and spoke about matters concerning the kingdom of God.

The number forty has a big significance in the Bible. It is associated with a period of probation, trial, and chastisement. Jesus was tried in the wilderness for forty days and defeated the temptations os Satan.  It can also point to the action of grace  leading to and ending in revival and renewal. Jesus appeared off and on to His disciples off and on for forty days after His resurrection before ascending to heaven.  As I meditate on what to write and think I know what direction God would have me go I find He takes me a totally different direction.  I think we might be looking at what Jesus did during these forty days.  Our question is if you knew you would leave this earth in forty days how would you use them? The next question is what’s stopping you from dong it?  We might only have the next minute.
