8 But 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.” Acts1:8
19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
The reading from the Acts of the Apostles speaks of the Holy Spirit helping the apostles as they go about doing their work to establish the church in Jerusalem. The selection from Matthew’s Gospel is Jesus’ charge to his disciples ( the Great Commission) for the work that is before them – to speak to all who will listen about the Good News – that salvation through Jesus is upon them !!!
Let us pray please – Heavenly God, give us ears to hear these words, give us clear minds to understand their meaning, give us understanding to know what we need to do next. We need to help this troubled world know and understand that a God of love and caring is here, and that He has brought salvation to the world through Jesus, The Christ. Guide us Lord to bring this message. We pray all through Jesus. Amen.
Yours in Christ , Rollie
