Daily Devotion: The Choosing of Matthias (Act 1:14-26

Act 1: 14-26

We see the beautiful image the early believers who always gather to pray together in a dedicated space. Here are the 12 disciples and also the women and Jesus' brothers. Together with the help of the Holy Spirit they chose Mathias to take over the position of Judas who had betrayed Jesus. Why it is necessary to filled up the position of 12 apostles?  The 12 apostles are the foundation of the model of kingdom of God. It is also the door through which people come to God.  Without setting the foundation, it is not possible to build up. We see that although Judas left, but the kingdom of God does not stop. But only those who left have lost the blessing that God has prepared. We should become the people like the early church who constantly gather to pray. Although it is far to come to church early in the morning to pray, but God cherish our effort to come to Him and keeping of holiness through which He can open up great history.  We should also become the disciples which are like the door for people to come to God, and cherish this great position and commission God has given us
