Scripture: Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” John 20:21-23 NIV
Observation: Jesus visits the disciples in the upper room before ascending into heaven.
Application: When we receive the Holy Spirit we receive great power. We are able to forgive or not forgive another’s sins. That’s a tremendous responsibility.
Prayer: Father, I pray that I don’t misunderstand or misuse the power of the Holy Spirit. My wish is to honor you in all that I do and to humbly display your love to others. I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen
