“But you will receive power hen 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.”- Acts 1:8

The book of Acts is an exciting book as it details events that took place when the Christian church was in its infancy.  There are many significant things that happen in the book such as the Council of Jerusalem, and Peter’s sermon which saw 3,000 people come into the church.  However these events started with a command.  That command is found in today’s verse.

Pentecost would not have happened if the Apostles just went about their daily lives after Jesus’s ascension.  They received the power of the Holy Spirit while they were in prayer.  Then they went out into the nations to spread the Gospel.  The command to go to  all the nations with the Gospel still applies today.  How are we sharing it in our part of the world?  During your prayer time this morning ask for opportunities to serve.  There is no shortage of ways to help spread the good news throughout the world.  Your local church is a great place to start.

  1. What I find fascinating about the book of Acts is how the Apostle Peter went from a timid man denying Christ to a bold proclaimer of Jesus. It just shows how the Holy Spirit worked in His life, and how God gave them the power to be witnesses to Jerusalem, Samaria, and the ends of the Earth. Thanks for sharing.
