Waiting for God to move

Read: Acts 1

Jesus returns to heaven, and the disciples replace Judas. A lot is changing in the lives of Jesus’ first followers as they embark on leading the first Christian church.

Crucified! Buried! Risen! Everything Jesus said has proven true. More than a good teacher, more than a wise friend, Jesus is God of all.

Fear evaporates and hope springs up as we encounter the risen Lord. Imagine the anticipation and excitement building among the first followers of Jesus as they waited together for the promised Holy Spirit. What an amazing time to be part of the Church!

The promises and commands of Jesus resonate with us today just as they did over 2,000 years ago. Acts 1:8 says, “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.” The mission is not finished. God has called us and empowered us to take the Gospel to the world.

“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Are you ready for God to move in your family? Do you anticipate an amazing move of God in your workplace? Are you eager for God to change your community? The time for waiting is over. God is moving! The local church is an unstoppable force. Its potential to change the world is realized when those in the church begin operating with urgency for the good news of Jesus Christ. Are you ready for change around you? If so, begin by asking God to do something new in your heart. Let’s go!

  • What does this passage teach us about God? How does it apply to you?
  • Jesus tells the disciples in Acts 1:8 that they will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes. What comes to mind when you think of the word “power”? Does your life exhibit the power of God?
  • Who can you share the Gospel with today? Who can you invite to church?
