Post resurrection, Jesus began to appear to his disciples at various times "teaching them about the Kingdom of God over a period of 40 days" (Acts 1:3). In John 20:21-23 we encounter Jesus commissioning his disciples to be kingdom builders in a new way. He breathed on them and told them to "receive the Holy Spirit". He was sending them into the world with the very same power and direction from the Holy Spirit that he had been given by the Father. Have we forgotten this gift altogether as the modern day church!? Have you encountered Jesus breathing His Holy Spirit onto your life?
