At their final meeting together, Jesus’ disciples ask Him if He is going to restore the kingdom of Israel. Restore the kingdom to Israel?!? What a question! They want to know if He is going to conquer the Romans and establish a divine earthly realm, and Jesus’ response is simple, “No, I’m leaving, and the ball is now in your court.” Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father, and the task of building His church has been given to His disciples through the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. God’s blessings to you as we worship the One whose authority now reigns “to the ends of the earth”!
