Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised. . . . You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” Acts 1:4, 8 There is a balance between the worship of the Lord and the work of the Lord. It is never the purpose of the Lord to simply have the Spirit stir us to worship and then leave us there. The Spirit’s task is to instill strength in us in the moment of worship, so that we can go out empowered to do the work of the Lord. And what is this work???
To be His witnesses…
After the Holy Spirit filled the disciples they went out into the streets of Jerusalem proclaiming the goodness of God through the resurrection of Christ and the people heard and responded and we are told in Acts 2 that after hearing Peter preach, 3000 were baptized and added to the church that very day. This why we recognize Pentecost, 50 days after the Passover, May 24th of this year) as the birthday of the church. Your pastor and partner in ministry, Kyle
