Luke continues his story of the acts and teachings of Jesus that he began in his Gospel. The ministry of Jesus is not over. The risen Jesus continues to minister to the world through the apostles empowered by the Holy Spirit. Before he ascends into heaven, the Lord Jesus urges the disciples to wait upon the Spirit to empower them to carry on God’s mission in Christ. The congregation of Christ’s disciples actively wait in a posture of prayer and study.
Opening Hymn: All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name (Hymnal 106)
