Scripture for Sunday April 3

Acts 1:1-14

After the death of Jesus, his followers must have thought their hopes for Jesus to set up his kingdom were ended. Then he rose from the dead, and they must have thought, now he will set up his kingdom.

Jesus had plans to make his power known, but it wasn’t the way the disciples had imagined. Once they received the Holy Spirit, they would have power, not to rule over people, but to share the incredible, life-changing news of Jesus’ victory over sin and death.
