The Basic Training Challenge – The Church Then And Now



Day 1 — Final Instructions


Lord God, quiet my soul and open my mind and heart to receive Your Word. Amen.

Read: Acts 1:1-14


Just before Jesus was taken up into heaven, He assured all the apostles that even though they did not know the timing, He would return and restore the Kingdom of Israel. He also assured them that the Holy Spirit would come to them and would provide guidance regarding what they should do. As Jesus was returning to heaven, what does He say will happen to His followers? What does He expect them to do? What does He expect us to do?


Heavenly Father, I will be Your disciple. I will be a witness for You with everyone, whether the time seems right or not. Amen.
