Luke 24:44-53; Acts 1:6-11 May 30, 2015

After his death and return, Jesus reminded his disciples that everything written about him in scriptures and prophesies had and would be fulfilled. He further told them that “repentance and forgiveness of sins” were to be proclaimed “to all nations”. They were to stay in Jerusalem and wait until they had been “clothed with power from on high”. They asked if this would be the time of Israel’s restoration and he said they could not know that. The Holy Spirit would come upon them and they were to be his witnesses. Then he led them out in the country and rose up into heaven.

After Jesus rose into heaven, “two men in white robes” asked the disciples why they stood staring up at heaven. It was time for people to get to work – and it still is!
