Acts is the story of the Gospel unleashed by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the people of God to the world. And Jesus teaches us that He means for that story to be continued through us. But many Christians find witnessing awkward at best, and unthinkable at worst. Perhaps that’s because we’re “giving it our best shot,” or feeling “forced” into it? But what we learn here is that Holy Spirit power is essential if the mission of Jesus is going to continue through us. In other words, this calling is bigger than anything we can do on our own, and the good news is that we don’t have to. His power is available to us now!
