“Left Behind for a Reason” - - Rev. Mereschuk - - May 28, 2017

The Disicples were desperately hoping that Jesus would "restore Israel" or at least take them with him into Paradise when he ascended to heaven 40 days after the resurrection - - but it was not to be! Instead, he charged them to be his witnesses here on earth and carry on his work (Acts 1:1-11). The be a disciple today is to receive that same charge - - stop staring up into heaven, and look at the world around you.
