“And you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses…” These are the words of the Risen Lord that changed the world. Jesus Christ, the Sending God now sends the Spirit to the rag-tag yet redeemed men and women who call Him Lord. And now these people who make much of God become the church and fully embrace the mission of God, inviting the people of their world into the life-transforming community of Jesus… inviting the people of their world to see and savor Him above all else. God, in His mysterious yet infinite wisdom and plan, has chosen, called, and commanded us to be the body of Christ… to put flesh on Jesus in this world… to be the mouth, the hands, the feet, the heart of Jesus in this world. We are now part of the story, and we now become the sharers of the story… the rescued of God who now become vital participants in the rescue mission of God.
