Luke 24:46-49 ” He told them, ‘This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in His Name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what My Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.’ “

What Jesus is promising here to His disciples is the Holy Spirit…the Spirit of Truth. (John 14:16) And as Believers, we also have been endowed with the Holy Spirit. (II Corinthians 1:22) Armed with this same Spirit of Truth we must then, as Jesus commanded His disciples, “Preach repentance and forgiveness of sins in His Name to all nations.” Now is the time to take our eyes off the temporal to the eternal, and to heed the higher calling Jesus spoke of here. For Jesus told His disciples in John 15:26-27, “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about Me. And you also must testify, for you have been with Me from the beginning.” Lift up your eyes today to this higher calling…for you have been more than equipped with the Holy Spirit who bears witness and glorifies Jesus Christ with the redemptive and saving truth of the Gospel.
