32 God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.
He also teaches us that Christ did not rise for his own benefit, but so he would enable the whole church to experience his life once the Spirit was poured out.
Through this power and fruitful results of Christ’s death and resurrection are sealed. We know that we have forfeited nothing by Christ’s departure from this world because although he is absent in body, he is present with us in a better way, by the grace of his Holy Spirit.
