Obey and Pray

August 18, 2019 Pastor: Dr. David Lorenz Series: Acts

Topic: Acts Passage: Acts 1:8–14

Have you ever been mesmerized by an event? I think about watching fireworks; seeing a shuttle launch; not being able to “look away” from an auto accident or some crazy video on the internet. There are certain events that grab our attention and it’s hard for us to pull ourselves away from them. I imagine the disciples feeling this way as Jesus ascended into heaven after declaring they would be witnesses to the whole world. As awe-struck as they were, they could not stand there forever… they needed to go back to Jerusalem. In the same way, we can’t simply look to the sky for Jesus to return. We must obey and pray.
