Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Acts 1:7-9

Friday, May 10, 2013 – Ascension of the Lord, Year C

Acts 1:7-9Jesus replied, “It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” When he had said this, as they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.

“…my witnesses…to the ends of the earth.” I often think of that bumper sticker that says “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and I think it is an appropriate thought for today’s passage. Our individual actions, though often small, combine with those of other people of faith to build God’s Kingdom.

Prayer: Gracious God, help us better sense the power of the Holy Spirit within us. Amen.
