As we walk along the life of the Apsotles.. the story of transformation is continues with the Spirit of resurrection..
Acts 7:55 But being full of the Holy Spirit, he gazed intently into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God;
The Spirit of Resurrection.. transformed apostles to travel accross the world to proclaim the gospel and passionately give their lives for the truth of the Gospel.. with the trust, faith and belief in the truth of resurrection.. the Spirit strengthened Steven to look at the heaven and the glory of God and Jesus standing at the right hand.. when he was stoned to death..
The Spirit did not stop with transforming Peter to be the Stone of which His Church will be built (the responsibility given to Peter by Jesus..).. but it also transformed Peter to passionately accept being crucified in the cross upside down..
The Spirit transformed John, the disciple whom Jesus loved.. after being plunged into boiling oil in Rome and suffering nothing from it.. to be able to write the book of revelations in the Island of Patmos where he survived for many years in the Island..
The Spirit of Resurrection transformed these people who started their journey from being common man to disciples to Apostles to Martyrs finally to be the Kingdom of God.. who gave their lives not for the King of this world.. but for the Lord of Lords.. and King of Kings.. and for His Eternal and Everlasting Reign and Kingdom.. the Spirit of resurrection is still at work and continuing to establish the Kingdom of Heaven with the people of earth..
