Day 3 // Unexpected Expectations

Before Jesus ascended to heaven, He told His disciples, “Wait here for the promise.” Something is coming. It’s like telling a child, “Here’s your Christmas gift under the tree, but it’s December 18th, so you’ve got to wait to open it up.”  The child is expecting something, but they don’t know what it is. Likewise, the Holy Spirit comes in a way that we don’t expect.

Is Prayer Awkward For You?

For people new to Christianity, prayer can be weird. Think about it. It’s not like normal communication where you can talk with your dad, or text your friend, or call your grandma. Communication is easy with people, but with God, where do you start. He is an all-knowing, ever-present God, but you can’t see Him. Not with your eyes at least. Maybe you feel like you’re talking to an invisible friend or maybe you feel like you’re praying wrong or you don’t know how to pray. Just know that it’s simpler than it looks.
