Text: Acts 1:6-8
Christ has given us his mission, to make disciples.  Jesus has left the building of his church, his kingdom on our hands.  The disciples understood that they were not up to the task and they were anxious to know where the power for such a mission was going to come.  Jesus taught them and through them us, our power is in a Person.  The Holy Spirit is our Helper, our source of strength, our power.  We must learn that the Spirit is not a resource that we turn on or off, that we tap into at our convenence.  He is a Person, with a will, with feelings, and with a mission and plan of his own.  The only way to walk in the power of the Spirit is to walk side-by-side with the Spirit.
