Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 364

  1. “But you will receive power…” (Acts 1:8).

Wonder what He meant? Jesus was sending His disciples across the map with the message of His Kingdom. Not unlike the time He sent them into the nearby villages, with the directive to “heal the sick, raise the dead…” He now launches their mission with the promise of power. I wonder if we truly understand the moment He describes. “Our Pentecost” is it just for the ability to witness or are we promised power too? Is this miracle-working power? Is this the power Peter demonstrated on the temple steps in Acts 3? Surely Jesus means something more than fortitude here. And if so, where has that power gone in our day? Pentecostals insist that this moment is for us too, so what did Jesus mean when He said we would receive power?
