Today, please read Mark 16:19-20, Luke 24:50-53, Acts 1 and Acts 2. What’s your highlight? We see Jesus “passing the torch” today – how can you pick it up and continue the work?
“And He led them out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands and blessed them. Now it came to pass, while He blessed them, that He was parted from them and carried up into heaven. And they worshiped Him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy, and were continually in the temple praising and blessing God. Amen.” Luke 24:50-53 NKJV
In Luke 24:50-53, Jesus led them “as far as”. I love that phrase. He brings us “as far as” we can go – and then if we are willing and obedient, He blesses us so we can go even farther with His anointing. He blessed them as He parted and they continued in worship. The fellowship was never broken, even as Jesus parted. He is never separate from us.
“So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.” Mark 16:19-20
Jesus sat down and the disciples went out. I want to still be going out today, don’t you?
Acts 1-2 – now we see the work continue, now we see the greater works Jesus said we would do. We ought to be doing those greater works still. ❤
