Just before his ascension, Jesus tells the disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit. Jesus also tells them that after the Spirit has come, they will be his witnesses. After his ascension the disciples then devoted themselves to prayer. In this way, they waited for, welcomed, and even sought the promised Spirit. During this time of isolation we would be well served by doing the same. We ought to be inviting a fresh encounter of God's Holy Spirit that we might be guided and equipped to serve him in a changing world.
