Acts 1:4-8

4 Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before.

5 John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
The Ascension of Jesus

6 So when the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?”

7 He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know.

8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Father, as You promised, You sent the Spirit of Truth, the Comforter, to testify about Jesus Christ and to give power to all who believe in Him. I stand before You believing in His name, having been sealed with Your Holy Spirit. When You empower me, I am set free to please You and to live as Your child. Enable me today to keep in step with You and to be Your witness wherever I go.
