On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.” Acts 1:4 NIV
The disciples and a group of over a hundred wanted to know what they should do. Jesus had returned from the tomb, spent time with them, and then gave them strange instructions — wait. I have often wondered what that must have been like — waiting in the Upper Room. Waiting in anticipation of that which they knew nothing about.
What did they do? What did they talk about? Did they have any idea what they were waiting for? Were they anxious? nervous?
So, here we sit waiting to board a plane to go to Jerusalem.
Perhaps we are not that different from the disciples of old.
I can’t wait to share with you all that we will see and experience.
So until then we are once again … waiting … anticipating.
So pull up a chair … and wait with us.
