[Jesus] replied, "The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times [for the restoration of the Kingdom], and they are not for you to know. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere — in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
After saying this, he was taken up into a cloud while they were watching, and they could no longer see him. As they strained to see him rising into heaven, two white-robed men suddenly stood among them. "Men of Galilee," they said, "why are you standing here staring into heaven? Jesus has been taken from you into heaven, but someday he will return from heaven in the same way you saw him go!"
— Acts 1:7-11 NLT
Are you a witness to others about what Jesus did in his ministry and what he is doing in your life? That witnessing was the apostles' mission, and Peter, the Lord's lead apostle, reminded each of us that we need to be prepared for the same mission: to be a witness for Jesus (1 Peter 3:15-16). No matter our job, role, or time in life, each of us has a place of influence in the lives of others. Are we using it to be a witness to the grace and power of our Lord Jesus?
