Jesus had been crucified, died, and risen; but not yet ascended into heaven, when He gave this great command to His disciples in Acts 1:8 – “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Instead of being concerned about Christ’s return, the disciples’ job was to carry His message throughout the world.God empowered His disciples to be faithful witnesses even under unfavorable circumstances, even to death. That same power for witnessing is available today!
