Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” Luke 24:45-49
"I've just seen Jesus!" "It's true, the Lord is alive!" These are the voices of those who were witnesses of the unimaginable. Can you fathom the excitement? Beyond the shear miracle that had occurred, something even bigger was coming. Jesus was getting ready to ascend to heaven and leave the Eleven for the final time. But He promised them that something even better was coming.
Until that day occurs, I desire to let His Spirit indwell my life to the point that I am no longer visible. When others look at me, I want them to see Jesus. I want people to say, "I've just seen Jesus in her life" or "It's true, the Lord is alive because I've seen Him in her." What an honor. Holy Spirit come and fill my life. It's a brand new day. The night has gone and morning is here!
