Acts 1

Acts 1

“But you will receive power when 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 US military is known around the world for having some of the best combat training known to man. With all of our elite special ops units– it’s no doubt! Think on this though, in today’s verse Jesus is ready to leave His disciples on the Earth and provide them with the greatest mission they will ever accomplish. Jesus says in Mark 16, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Wait?! Did Jesus just say the whole creation? That’s a huge mission! But thankfully He gave them the best spiritual training possible over the three years he was with them, not to mention the Holy Spirit was going to come and live within them and give them power to accomplish the mission, or as its otherwise called, The Great Commission. Training for the mission God has called each and everyone of us is no easy task, but thank the Lord that He has provided the Holy Spirit as well as our combat manual (the bible)!
