He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. 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.” Acts 1:7-8
God has control over all events and He holds the set time for Jesus’s return. When you accept Christ, you receive the power of the Holy Spirit which takes up residence inside on you. That power includes courage, boldness, confidence, insight, ability, and authority. We need all of these gifts if we are to accomplish Jesus’s mission, but in order to experience that power of the Holy Spirit, we must first invite Jesus Christ to be the Lord and Savior of our lives. Today’s goal is simple but it requires all of our life. We are His witness to share the gospel all over this world. You have purpose and mission in a relationship with Christ; apart from Christ, a life has no clear purpose and no meaningful mission. Today, make the choice to serve Christ with all of your life and embrace the power of the Holy Spirit and let God provide your mission.
