Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Matthew 28: 19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Jesus made their commission clear to the disciples. And he promised to be with them always. He also came to Paul and recruited him for a lifetime of evangelism and teaching. Before, they were just regular guys. After, they were changed men. Am I changed, now that I have given over my life to God? Can anyone see I am different? I have always believed in God, and have been a Christian since my childhood. But it feels different now. What is actually different about me? Can people see God in me?
Holy Father, you can answer these questions for me. You give my life a purpose and a meaning. Help me, God, to see my path to you. Amen
