Led By The Spirit – God’s Power In Us, For Others
Acts 1:6-11 ESV
“So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed 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 and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud (WOW-archive footage) took him out of their sight. And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.””
Change is inevitable but progress is optional.
- God’s timing is perfect
There are some things God knows that we don’t need to know.
- Trust the Lord and His timing
Vs 8 – “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.””
The Power of God was not given to make you a better Christian. The Power of God is given to us to make others children of God.
- We work while we wait
