ACTS (Part 2)
The book of Acts is a sequel to the 4 Gospels. The full name of this book is “The Acts of the Apostles” but it is sometimes called “The Acts of the Holy Spirit” because it records how the Gospel spread “like fire”, once the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the apostles and other early Christians on the Day of Pentecost.
Acts 1:8: provides a simple outline of Acts: “ But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” As predicted by Jesus in this verse, those early Christians became powerful witnesses once they were baptized in the Holy Spirit, and through them the Gospel spread from Jerusalem to Rome. Probably the most prominent characteristic of the early Christians was their spiritual power. They fasted and prayed fervently, and their faith released the miracle-working power of God. Acts is about ordinary people who did extraordinary things, as the Holy Spirit worked through them.
It is my prayer that as we study this book, we too will be filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit, and become powerful witnesses like the first century Christians were.
