Acts 1, 8

I.

The superhuman task.  Jesus, the Head of the Church, commissioned her to carry on his work after this departure.  “As the Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”  He died for all; now they are to tell it to all.  Espouse the right; oppose the wrong.  What a task!!

II.

They must have adequate equipment–power to prevail.  Sin is strongly entrenched and powerful.  They need guidance and power.  Without both they are insufficient:  with these they shall prevail.

(1)  Power to realize Christ lives and is an ever-present help.  The Spirit did that for them.

(2)  Power to testify of him and prevail with men to yield to him.

(3)  Power to edify believers and build them up that they may render valiant service.

Many problems will arise.  Heavenly wisdom will be needed to solve them.

Worldwide problems confront the church today.  Only the Gospel can solve them.  The guidance and power of the Spirit are essential.  May he help the church in this needful time and speed the coming of a better day.
