Last Sunday got us off and running in the book of Acts. We left the disciples as they waited to receive power from the Holy Spirit before embarking on the mission Jesus entrusted them with, to be His witnesses “in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8). As they waited for God to do great things through them, they were far from inactive. They prepared for what was ahead of them.
Jesus has left us, the Congregational Church of Goffstown, with a mission like that of the early Church, to be Jesus’ witnesses in Goffstown, Southern New Hampshire and to the end of the earth. We have already received Holy Spirit power, but find ourselves, at times, in need for further preparation as we wait for God to do mighty and awesome acts through us. How do we prepare ourselves for that, as a church and as individual followers of Christ? How do we discern what God would have us all do next? Could revival and awakening really happen in our church and community? I hope you share my excitement for what God is currently doing through our church and that you will join me this Sunday at 10:30 A.M., as we attempt to answer these questions from our text, and as we seek together the power of the Holy Spirit in our witness for Jesus.
