The Book of Acts

The book of Acts is a book unlike any other in the Bible. It is the beginning of the church we know today. Jesus has just been crucified and resurrected, and then ascends up to heaven after sending the disciples out on their mission (which is our mission, too). As soon as Jesus is physically gone, two angels show up and ask the disciples why they’re just standing there when Jesus clearly gave them a command to get working on the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20). They need not worry about Jesus being “gone” - right now they just need to get started on this church. Over the next 28 chapters, the group experiences some crazy stuff - the coming of the Holy Spirit, the conversion of thousands, the transformation of Saul, miracles of healing and restoration, and the growth of the church across the known world. It is unlike any other book because it sets the stage for the life we know today. It showed the early church - and shows us today - that the power of Jesus is real and alive even though He is no longer physically present. God is still working through His people. God is still changing the world through the obedience of those who follow Him.
