The Power to Share

Jesus had given a heads up to the disciples that He would be ascending back into heaven to rule His church at the right hand of God the Father. So, between the Resurrection and Ascension of our Lord, He was preparing them to receive the Project, the ongoing Presence, and he Power. The project? We know it as the Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20. It is to make disciples, baptizing and teaching obedience. Luke quotes Jesus “You shall be my witnesses,” and John quotes Him “As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” That’s the project, which we weekly review in our Mission, which includes “Tell others” and as our Vision Statement expresses our passion to lead people to become “Fully devoted followers of Jesus.” For this project, Jesus promises his presence, ”I am with you always,” and the power, “When the Holy Spirit comes upon you.”
