The Book of Acts
The Book of Acts is the account of Jesus Christ’s continued work on earth through the church that He established. The book provides a history of God’s work over a thirty-year period, following Christ’s ascension into Heaven.
In this divine record we find the church empowered by the Spirit, blessed by God the Father, and persecuted by the world. The believers find strength in God to witness to the lost, send out missionaries, establish churches, and endure difficulties. Peter and Paul are the principle characters but many saints shine brightly for the Lord, such as Stephen, Philip, Barnabas, Aquila and Priscilla. Within this sacred history are apostles, evangelists, missionaries, elders, and church members all striving to spread the gospel to a lost world. The theme is not men and their great deeds but God’s power to accomplish His work.
It is a book about God’s greatness seen through those that look to Him for strength. Because of this, you will be encouraged to live for God’s glory, trusting in Him as you carry out His will on earth.
