After Jesus left the disciples and ascended into the clouds, they stood there gazing into the heaven most likely thinking, “Now What?” It took an angel to get their heads out of the clouds.
The Disciples were still focused on the wrong plan. Kingdom and position seemed to be the focus of the disciples. Again, they asked Jesus, “Lord, are you restoring the Kingdom to Israel at this time?”(V-6). Logical but wrong. Jesus was polite and loving. “It is not for you to know… BUT you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My Witnesses… (1:8) what position, in what kingdom are you shooting for?
Witnesses… Yes Jesus wants us to have the title of
Witnesses. When the Lord opens up an opportunity for you to give an account of what He is doing in your life, your family and your church family, you should be a witness. The power give to us through the Holy Spirit is for this purpose. Fulfill His purpose.
Lord, give us opportunity to witness and fulfill the position of witness though the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
