Don’t worry about that…but DO KNOW THIS!

Last night we met in Pontypridd and I spoke on being filled with the Holy Spirit – continually, crammed full to oveflowing everyday. Not to go into it all but I just wanted to share one thing that I shared last night: Acts 1:6-8 says:

6 So when they met together, they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.

8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

There are lots of things we would like to know, answers to questions that we think would help us but that God holds back from telling us – this was one of those times. But it’s not keeping information from us out of fun, but rather Jesus was concerned with not letting his disciples become distracted from what was about to happen.

Jesus is saying: “guys, I know you want to know all the details…but that isn’t going to help you right now. Listen to me, you don’t need to know about the where, why and how of it all BUT YOU DO NEED TO KNOW THIS – you WILL receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you’ll be my witnesses, my record to the ends of the earth.”

Don’t worry about that – BUT DO KNOW THIS!

Today and this week, don’t get hung up on things which won’t help you or that will distract you – just know what you need to know, the things that Jesus is concerned that you truly know. In the light of what I’ve written here, know this – be filled with the Holy Spirit!

Have a great week!

    Life’s just so fantastic with the Holy Spirit. He makes even the tough times good and the dull jobs fun.

    Got a mountain of desperately dull paperwork in front of you and calls to make to your most difficult and demanding clients (of course, if any of my clients out there are reading this, I couldn’t possibly mean you) – just ask the Holy Spirit to fill you anew to overflowing and everything becomes sooooo much better!!!

    Great Word yesterday Dave
