At the end of Luke, we find Jesus, resurrected, with His disciples. Still in shock, the disciples listen as Jesus promises to send them the Holy Spirit. He leaves them with this last bit of instruction, “But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:29
The Book of Acts starts with this exact scene. The disciples wait patiently (or impatiently) in the city for Jesus’ promise. Suddenly the Holy Spirit comes to them with power!
Acts is the beginning of “The Rest of the Story.” We are in the “The Rest of the Story” right now. We have the Holy Spirit inside of us!
