In Acts 1, Jesus spoke his final words on earth to his faithful followers. These men had walked for years alongside the one whom they were just beginning to understand was their Lord and God. Jesus’ last words on earth still reverberate across the earth, today. His Lordship is still expanding, as heart after heart turns to him in every generation.
“He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.’” Acts 1:7-8
We still don’t know. God’s time still has not run out and he is still reaching and searching for his lost sheep. There are still so many far away from him. So many who have not heard.
This Sunday, June 9th, is Pentecost Sunday; the day the Holy Spirit rushed upon the Christ followers and forever changed the spiritual landscape of the world. We recognize this Pentecost Sunday as the International Day for the Unreached. This Sunday, Compassion Radio partner, World Mission invites you to “embrace your part in taking the gospel to the far-flung corners of the world where more than two billion people have yet to hear about Jesus.” Two billion people are still waiting for the Holy Spirit to come rushing upon them. Today, we are asking you to join in our prayers for these men and women whom Jesus had in mind when he sent his followers to go and make disciples.
