WPC Warm Up, April 25, 2016
This Sunday we will celebrate Ascension of the Lord. We will hear the story of Jesus meeting with his disciples for the last time in Acts 1:1–11. He ordered his eleven followers to wait in Jerusalem until they received the gift of the Holy Spirit. Ten days later Pentecost fell on those early believers. We will then look at the words of Jesus on that occasion that we call the Great Commission in Matthew 28:16–20.
These Ascension texts defy explanation and domestication. They are wondrously wild and magnificently glorious. They also are interim Scriptures. We will learn what we are to believe and do while we "wait." Perfect for WPC!
