Don’t leave….wait here.


These are the final words of Jesus before his ascension back to heaven to his disciples. They are told to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promised comforter, the pouring out of the Holy Spirit to empower the Church. Acts 1:3-5, Luke 24:44-53.

Waiting is a hard game, if you wait to long for something naturally you start to doubt.

But Jesus gave them 10 days to wait and they kept themselves busy during that period. Acts 1:6-12.

Much later those same disciples were able to give a powerful testimony of all of these tremendous events for us. 1 John 1:1-10.
