In Acts 1 the Savior went up, in Acts 2 the Spirit came down and in Acts 3-28 the saints went out. God gave me this outline many years ago and it has helped me greatly
Jesus sat down
He is now sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven, Mk 16:19, Acts 2:33, Rom 8:34, Col 3:1, Heb 1:3. Why did He sit down? He finished what He came to do! Ten days later He sent the Holy Spirit to take up where He left off. The Holy Spirit came to take over. This is crucial for us to understand and act accordingly.
He shall glorify me
When we understand this and let the Holy Spirit take over, "He shall glorify me" John 16:14. Here is the key for believers to glorify the Lord Jesus.
What we ask Jesus to do
We ask Jesus to comfort us. We sing, "Jesus when I need Him most, Jesus is near to comfort and cheer." NO, the Holy Spirit is our comforter today. "I will pray the Father" said Jesus, "and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever" John 14:16. Jesus went away and sat down.
Led by the Spirit
"We sing, "Jesus Savior, pilot me" or "Jesus led me all the way." God said we are to be led by the Spirit today Rom 8:14 "for as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God." That is not to take away anything from the Lord Jesus. Remember, "He (the Holy Spirit) shall glorify me" Jn. 16:14. We do not talk to the lost man about the Holy Spirit. We tell Him about Jesus suffering and dying for his sins and rising from the dead. Jesus is the Savior for the lost and the Spirit is the power for the saved. "To be rightly related to the Savior makes you a Christian, to be rightly related to the Spirit makes you a spiritual Christian" L. S. Chafer.
He is the power
Our worship, our work, our witnessing today is to be done in the conscious dependence on the power of the Holy Spirit. THIS IS THE KEY. More to come. Don't miss the next step.
Good news, God love you and me, the Lord Jesus suffered and died for our sins, paid our debt in full, rose again and was seen by hundreds. This gospel is the power of God unto salvation to every who believes this will get them to heaven. "Believest thou this?
