Acts 1:8

"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
Acts 1:8

Too often when we hear missions, we think, "What country should I go to?" But maybe your mission field is closer to your home.

This is one of the better known verses in scripture. Jesus is resurrected and He leaves direction for His apostles. Once you have the power of the Spirit dwelling in you, be witnesses in Jerusalem first, followed by Judea and Samaria, and then the whole earth. This instruction that Jesus gave to His apostles still applies to us today.

As you read this verse notice how Jesus tells them to first depend on the Spirit and second, start being a witness at home and then work your way out. God has placed everyone in a neighborhood, a job, or a school for a reason. Pray that the Lord would give you a fresh portion of His Spirit to be a witnesses at home because while missions abroad are great, don't neglect the mission field in your own backyard. Be encouraged knowing that God wants to use you and has placed you there for a reason. Be a light in the darkness and share His love shown in the Gospel.

Trusting in His Spirit,

Sean Boehm
