Bible Passage: Acts 1:1-11, Isaiah 61:1-7
This Sunday celebrates Jesus’ ascension. It happened forty days after the resurrection. He spent all those forty days appearing to the disciples, eating with them and proving in many ways that he was alive. In fact, he appeared during those days to over 500 people, and later to Paul on the road to Damascus. Jesus is alive!
He talked to them about the Kingdom of God and also about the Holy Spirit. He told them they would be his witnesses about it. But what does that mean now, in 2021? That is our subject on Sunday.
