Your Faith Journey 78

The resurrected Jesus told his disciples, “in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:5 NLT). He went on to let them know that when the Holy Spirit was with them, they would be his witnesses “in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8 NLT). We, Jesus’ 21st-century disciples, are his witnesses in our homes, families, and circles of influence. We are witnesses of the resurrection power of God transforming lives, including our own. As the people of Avon UMC, we have been commissioned to be Christ’s witnesses in Avon, Brownsburg, Danville, Indy, and Plainfield. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to share God’s Good News and make new, maturing, and fruitful disciples of Christ (Mark 16:15 & Matthew 28:19).
