He didn’t leave you without the promise of someone to help you. Knowing you would be weak and vulnerable without Him, Jesus Christ promises His Spirit will accompany you – if you are one of His children – He has not left you alone… Such was the case of the disciples who watched Jesus suffer. They were there when He was crucified. They thought it was all over and that they were left alone, but this was not the case.

The Instruction – Acts 1:4

Evangelism is an act of warfare. Without the power and presence of the Holy Spirit nothing effective can be done.

 The disciples were to take the teachings and message of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem, all Judea, Samaria, far and wide, but not without the power and presence of the Holy Spirit.  The disciples were to “wait” for the  promise  of the Father (John 14:16, John14: 26, John 15:26).

Just because Christ was absent did not mean His ministry, message and work he left behind would cease. Eliminating Him was not the end of the matter… Through His Spirit, He was able to communicate, conduct, direct and instruct the disciples in all matters. This is why it is of utmost importance to pray for empowerment by the Holy Spirit before engaging in any gospel endeavour.

The Work of God Continues:

The power and presence of the Holy Spirit is what empowers and enables the ministry of Jesus Christ to progress, prosper and continue . This is not a work of the flesh, but a spiritual work under the instruction and direction of the Holy Spirit.  

Through Paul’s teachings, we know God desires to strip us of our worldly affections so that we can live a spiritual life; a renewed life; the new life and fulfill one’s destiny.   Jesus Christ gave His life for our freedom, He paid the penalty for sin.

The Restorer of Life desires you to live a fulfilled life, a life in accordance to His desire and will. God wants to take glory from your life, remember, if you are a child of God, He is preparing you for life with Him in eternity. Trust Him today, He has freely given you the grace to do so…
