Acts 1:12-14

12 Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk[c] from the city. 13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

One response to “Acts 1:12-14

  1. The emotions and sorrow had to be indescribable. They knew Jesus had gone. They knew that their best friend, mentor, and hope was no longer with them. They knew trials and tests were to come and that their true ministry had begun.

    They gathered together with other believers and prayed constantly. They poured out their hearts and fears to God and sought His deliverance and strength. This is a model for us and time will have had no effect on the method.
