acts 1

  • i’m struck by Jesus’ response in Acts 1 to the apostles when they asked if it was now time for him (jesus) to “restore the Kingdom to Israel.” instead of actually answering the question (and correcting their thinking on the nature of God’s kingdom), Jesus simply says, “you’ll receive power when the Spirit comes.” fascinating. instead of worrying about things that are fully in God’s control, maybe we are to just focus on being empowered by the Spirit.
  • the apostles devoted themselves to prayer. when was the last time i got friends together to pray — let alone be devoted to prayer together?
  • receiving power from the Spirit preceded the apostles becoming Jesus’ witnesses.
