Worship This Week
11:00 a.m. EST VIA Livestream
“It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Book of Acts 1: 7-8
This Sunday the resurrected Jesus will be lifted up to the heavens. I wonder what was going through the hearts and minds of Jesus’ friends as he told them he was leaving, and that he would be sending them his Holy Spirit. What were they thinking when he told them that they would be his witnesses to the ends of the earth?
How would you feel?
The disciples are entering a time of change, and need to learn how to let go of how life was before, with Jesus no longer physically next to them. I imagine they had been perfectly content with locking themselves up in a closed room eating bread with the resurrected Jesus.
We, too, are in a time of transformation and change – as a world, as a church, and as individuals. What is God saying to us these days? Do we know that we have an advocate breathing God’s Holy Spirit on us, inspiring us to be witnesses in these days, and in a new way?
