Who's Calling the Shots in Your Life?

Jesus gave the church a powerful and demanding command in Acts 1:8. How are we to do this? 

Not on our own (Acts 1:4)

Wait- for the Holy Spirit's to enable us. In order to do God's work, we need the Spirit to enable us. We have to wait on God for his timing, his ways, his will. They waited and prayed for 10 days straight...there is power in corporate prayer.

Three things that happened in the life of the apostles after the Spirit came that made a difference:

  1. Now knew and experienced the indwelling presence of God. 
  2. Their words became bold.
  3. The Holy Spirit was their source of guidance.
