The disciples who waited in Jerusalem after Christ’s resurrection were mostly working men with few resources and little influence. Yet Jesus told them to spread the truth of God’s love first in their town and then the whole world. I bet they felt overwhelmed and intimidated by such a task. And perhaps you do, too. In an age of viral videos and influencers, many of us look at our small reach as more like a T-rex’s short arms than missionary work. But Jesus wasn’t saying every believer would reach every person; rather all of us together must work to reach everyone. God has given each of us a circle of influence and each person matters, so if you only reach one person, that’s a blessing. Think about the people in your circle. Is there someone you can speak to this week to share the love of God?
Acts 1:1-9 NIV
In my former book, Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
