What I Don’t Like about the Matthias Solution

Passage: Acts 1:12-26,1 John 5:9-15,John 17:9-19

On this special Sunday, between the Ascension of our Lord and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, we do well to remember Christ’s promise, “Lo, I am with you always.” The work of the Church goes on, from the mundane (choosing an apostle to replace Judas) to the spiritually sublime (as John assures us, whoever has the Son has life!). As God comes and goes, so do we—sent out into the world confident in His abiding presence and fully equipped with His Holy Spirit.
