Having a Heartbeat for a Dying World

 

Acts 1:8 serves as marching orders for the followers of Christ, demonstrating the necessary and expected movement of God’s redemptive plan from our own individual reality toward the vast world beyond what we know. The challenge for Jesus’ disciples and the early church was getting past the prejudices and bias’ of their comfortable cultural Hebrew setting by becoming radically transformed by the Holy Spirit to empower them to cross over their racial, gender, political & religious barriers to proclaim the Gospel message locally and globally.
