Please wait!

At the beginning of the book of The Acts of the Apostles, Jesus told His disciples to stay in Jerusalem. “…wait for the gift my Father  promised which you have heard me speak about. For John baptised with water but in a few days you will be baptised with the Holy Spirit.” The disciples waited, but in the meantime got on with being disciples. They met to pray constantly, they chose Judas’s replacement to continue the ministry just as the Bible commanded them to do. Then came Pentecost! When I switched on my computer to write this it said “Please Wait!” It then does all sorts of stuff in the background to make sure it’ll work properly. Are you waiting? What are you doing as you wait? Let’s follow Jesus’ command to wait and do the things He would have us do to serve in the power of the Holy Spirit! Ian
