Proclaim- Part 2

And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.

 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Acts 1:8,9

God created us for himself. This  is quite evident in this last charge to His disciples. The book of The Acts of the Apostles is based on this commandment. But they could not accomplish the will of God alone. They needed God’s awesome power, which they received on the day of Pentecost. We can all have this very same power from God if we just ask for it. However, without it, we can not accomplish our true purpose. This is the truth that the “world” refuses to believe.

Proclaim the  name of Jesus. No matter what the cost! Later in this book, when Peter and John were told by the rulers and elders of Israel that they should no longer speak in the name of Jesus, Peter and John  state:

For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. Acts 4:20

This attitude helped build the early Church. And it was all because of God’s power! 

Plan of Action: I am often amazed that the truth of God is so simple to understand, yet I stumble at being a doer of the Word. If I refuse to let the “world” fill my head with lies and just do what my Heaven Father wants me to do, wouldn’t life be more rewarding?

One Response to Proclaim- Part 2

  1. Michael, Very well said and written. Your words are inspiring to remind us that we are servants and children of our Lord. It is his wishes and desires of our efforts and objectives that will make this world a better place. As earthly citizens we can not be responsible for the acts of our Lord but we can shape the outcomes by his guidance and love. Every event the Lord puts before us has a purpose. It is our responsibility to react and put forth effort in the manner our Lord directs us. This is not an easy task. Many of us are not listening or willing to realize his power and love. It is reminders like your post that we can refocus our actions and put our confindence in his guidance.
