Jesus' final words to His disciples before returning to the Father are powerful, direct, and offer us a wake-up call to mission. I believe we need to help each other grab three truths from this message:
So, dear brother or sister, let's encourage each other during this interim to complete the mission given us by Jesus using the power of the Holy Spirit and remind each other not to fuss and fight about questions that only God can answer!
Father, please forgive us for our foolishness and fussing over questions we cannot answer. We repent, turn our hearts away from our silliness, and return to the mission Jesus gave us. We trust and depend upon the power of the Holy Spirit to help us in this mission and to transform us into the people the Lord wants us to be. We offer You our hearts and lives as we seek to be Your obedient, faithful, and mission-driven people. We pray this prayer of dedication in Jesus' name. Amen.
