The work of redemption is not on man alone–it won’t be incomplete or unfinished. God Himself will come to ensure and complete the work of redemption. –Wil Owens

 Acts 1: On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”

He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Wil Owens, Teaching Pastor at Clovis Evangelical Free Church explains in this two-part sermon series how the Holy Spirit not only comforts believers inwardly in all their struggles but also empowers us in the work of sharing the gospel.
