They cannot receive the power of the Holy Spirit until after Jesus returns to heaven. In the power of the Holy Spirit they will boldly go where no man has gone before to preach the good news, risking their lives to bring about the kingdom of God on earth.
For reflection: Do I have the power of the Holy Spirit to spread the kingdom of God on earth? Am I using it fully?
Let us pray. Jesus, you are a God of great abundance. With you there is always more. I want to receive more of the power of your Holy Spirit to do the things you call me to do.
(Perhaps the following video will put a smile on your face so that you show the joy of the Holy Spirit to all who see you today. We should always be ready to explain the hope and the joy that we have.)
