Discourse on the Divine Resource

Jesus gave prove that He had risen from death as explained in Acts 1:1-12 . For forty days after suffering on the cross, He appeared on earth to explain about the kingdom of God (v. 3). The disciples were concerned about the earthly kingdom but Jesus was trying to enlighten them to the spiritual kingdom.

Between the time of Christ’s ascension and return, God’s plan for our life is to spread the Good News of His Son around the world. The tool to help in this plan is the Holy Spirit which is a resource of instruction and empowerment to assist in living a reinvigorated life of firm witness of Christ.

Jesus gave His followers these instructions: stay in Jerusalem and wait for the gift of the Holy Spirit (v. 5). This gift is a divine resource to empower as a witness in Jerusalem, in all Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (v. 8).

This day with You Lord, we are thankful for the opportunity to share the gospel and the power You have given in the Holy Spirit to assist in doing Your work. We are ready to use this power available to us and will enthusiastically take advantage of every opportunity to share as You work through us to spread the Good News. Amen!
