May 24th, 2020 – As we welcome our Rockvale CP Church family back to worshiping together in the sanctuary, we are reminded by Pastor Jonathan of the importance of the gift that was left for us by the risen Christ. The same gift that bonds us all together, even when we are not in the same building. In scripture today, we see the disciples watching Jesus ascend with a promise that while He is gone for now, he will leave behind something that will make us better witnesses for Him until he returns. God didn’t just leave us the example of Christ. He left us the Holy Spirit, the power of Christ. Pastor Jonathan points out that Jesus’ ministry didn’t begin until the Holy Spirit had descended on him. And, just as Christ showed, the Holy Spirit should shine within us and be used in amazing ways to impact our lives as well as the lives of others.
Acts 1: 1-11
