DISCIPLESHIP

TITLE: GO INTO ALL THE WORLD

Acts 1v8 But you shall receive power when the holy spirit has come upon you and you shall be witnesses to me in Jerusalem ( local ) and in all Judea (national) Samaria (cross cultural) and to the end of the earth (international)

Jesus last earthly command begins with the promise that you shall receive power from the Holy ghost and ties this directly to the fact that you shall be witnesses

We need to wait to receive his power to act as the early church didv4 – and being assembled together he commanded them not to go from Jerusalem but to wait for the promise of the father.

So once anointed you will have the power then to preach the good news and boldly declare Jesus as the son of God.
