Luke 24:49-53, Acts 2:1-4
“I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” – Luke 24:49
The disciples were to carry on with the work our Lord Jesus was doing while here on earth. In Acts 10:38, we understand that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and power and He went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed by the devil. Before He ascended, He promised to send the Holy Spirit and advised the disciples to tarry in Jerusalem till the Holy Ghost would come and they would be endued with power from on high.
The disciples believed in who Jesus is and this was shown in the fact that as He was being carried into Heaven, they worshiped Him and they obeyed His instruction by returning to Jerusalem. Let us follow the foot steps of those who have gone before us and learn to worship and obey Him. The disciples were baptized because they obeyed Him.
Let us therefore learn to worship Him and obey Him, for then shall we experience great joy like the disciples.
Pray that you will continually worship and obey the Lord.
