Acts 1:12-26

This sermon was preached at Crosswater Community Church in Sultan, WA on 1/14/23 

Jesus told His disciples “it is to your advantage that I go away…” because doing so allowed for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are not to merely exist as passive believers waiting for the return of Jesus. Instead, as Christ-followers we are “Empowered” by the Spirit, enabling us to live a life characterized by boldness, unity, and unwavering faith in order to bring the transformative love and life of Jesus Christ to the world around us.

GOD's people are so very different from one another and yet we have the most important power and reason to be together...JESUS! Praying together, sharing HIS word together and obeying HIM together really does keep us together!
