49 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.”
50 When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. 51 While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven.
In this great passage our risen Lord urges His disciples to endure by assuring them that He is about to send the Holy Spirit to be with them always. That great promise was fulfilled on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended on up to 120 faithful followers and thus the church was born.
Thank God that He has graciously allowed us to be members of His church, filled with His spirit and gifted to praise and serve Him.
