My sermonette is: Stay Focused! We have oh so much to be Grateful to our LORD for. We must remind ourselves that we are here, in this time, with purpose. We can not allow ourselves or those near and dear to us, to look back. That also includes complaining. We are on assignment and must keep moving.
In the First Chapter of the Book of Acts; Immanuel-Christ-Jesus finish speaking, and was taken up; and a cloud received HIM out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; "why stand ye gazing up into heaven?" What had Immanuel-Christ-Jesus spoken unto them?
Act1:7,8 "Certain specifics you don't need to know. Ye shall receive power after the Holy Spirit is come upon you. And ye shall be Witnesses unto ME in Israel and unto the uttermost parts of the earth." We are to be Witnesses.
Trips to Israel? Immanuel went to Israel to destroy Death, and to expose Religion[bondage]. The Holy Spirit moves with a purpose - and so should we. We are to take the Gospel - as Witnesses, to the "uttermost parts of the earth" which can not be done "Gazing."
