What's Next? (An Ascension sermon)
Check out Second Presbyterian Church!
Read along with Acts 1:1-14.
**Note of caution: I was under the weather preaching this sermon. As you listen, you'll probably want to get me a glass of water in the middle; the cough drop I was sucking on wasn't cutting it. Rest assured, someone finally took pity on my and got me some water, for which I am grateful! (See Matthew 10:42.)
And then, wouldn’t you know, coincidentally, or rather providentially, the same day I read this article, I started to study this passage from the book of Acts. And then it hit me! THIS is the disciples’ biggest problem: their thinking is constantly too small!
Jesus always thinks abundantly: feeding five thousand with a few loaves and fish; casting out a legion of demons with a few words; creating barrels of wine out of simple water. When he speaks and acts, it’s never out of fear or scarcity; it’s always out of a mindset of abundance and trust.
