Katrina's Musings (Gospel Meditations/Missions-Day 5)

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

If this new thing called "the church" (in the New Testament) was going to take over the world with the Gospel, the Holy Spirit isn't going to do the same thing He did in the Old Testament. In the Old Testament it was "Come and see. Come, Naaman. Come, Queen of Sheba. Come to Israel where God's Spirit-filled priests are ministering in God's temple." But Jesus inaugurated the new age of Holy Spirit power. It's no longer "Come and see," but "Go and tell." Every city becomes the holy city; every people becomes the chosen people; every church and every believer becomes the holy temple."
