Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, "Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit."
So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, "Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?"
Lord Jesus, forgive us for not displaying your life, your values, and your purpose to our world. We want our fellowships, our churches, to be outposts of your Kingdom so that the world may see how to live and honor God. Empower us, Holy Spirit, to give our lives to the will of God as we seek to provide the world a glimpse of what the Kingdom of God will be when it dawns in all of its fullness. I ask these blessings for the sake of the Good News and for the health of your church, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Unstoppable! is a one-year devotional guide through the book of Acts. Each devotional consists of a scripture passage, a reflection and a prayer. The reflection opens up the day's scripture and shows how it challenges one to live for Jesus.
