“Witnessing and Waiting”

“Witnessing and Waiting”

Date: May 16, 2021

by Richard Coble
Acts 1:1-11

“But do not mistake formation for languishing. Do not mistake waiting on the Spirit for procrastination. Because God takes the time to shape a community, and an individual. The resurrected Christ walked with the disciples for forty days and then asked them to wait even longer before the day of Pentecost, longer still before the days when the church “had all things in common [and] would sell their positions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all” (Acts 2:44-45), longer still before Peter’s leadership and before Paul’s journeys. The disciples first had to stare up at the clouds, and wait on the Spirit.”
