We see that after Jesus ascended into heaven, the next thing He did was to send His Spirit to empower His church to carry out the Great Commission. We consider two things: 

  • Christ’s pouring out His Spirit to establish His Word to His church. 
  • Christ’s pouring out His Spirit to empower His church to fulfill the Great Commission. 

We are reminded that our sins quench the Spirit and we are encouraged to pray that the Lord would pour out His Spirit in revival in order to powerfully advance His work.
