Acts of the Apostles
DescriptionThe Book of Acts naturally comes in order after the books of facts the four Gospels. As those tell us what the Son of God did and said during His perfect life of love, His death upon the Cross, His resurrection and ascension to God's right hand in Heaven, so the book of Acts delineates the doings and the ministry of the Holy Spirit, who came into the world to abide in the saints after the Ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.
As the Gospels unfold the love of the Savior, so the book of Acts follows with an account of the life of the saints lived by the power of the Spirit of God.
The book begins with the formation of the Church at Pentecost by the descent and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, when believers were united into one Body; and it continues on to tell of the spread of the gospel, the forming of churches from among Jews and Gentiles. It gives us the history of the early years of Christianity and the gradual development of Christian truth and practice, especially as committed to the Apostle Paul, whose labors and experiences occupy the largest part of the book.
Acts is an intensely interesting and instructive volume, and I do trust that God will use my meditations on it to make His truth clearer to some, as well as to stir us all to increased devotion to Christ and His service.
