An Homiletic journey through the Acts of the Apostles

Acts of the Apostles

What would you do if your boss was killed?  You had followed him faithfully for 3 years, never giving much thought as to what you had left behind, amazed at his teachings, and then devastated when he was murdered.  Then he came back to life and you were both witness to this miracle and commissioned to tell the world about it.

What would you do next?
How about huddle with others in the same boat scared out of their knickers?
Then the Spirit of God engulfed you and you were filled with knowledge and power and the burning desire to speak the truth.  There would be no more keeping this good news to yourself.

That’s the 21st century lead-in to the Book of Acts.  The author is Luke the gospel writer.  The book is written as a letter than is also an account of many years, martyrs, missionaries, miracles, hardships, and faith.  It is written to a friend of God.  Perhaps this was a single person or all of us whom have been called friend by God.

This article is something of a homiletic journey through the Acts of the Apostles.  It is not a study aid, commentary, chapter by chapter explanation, or stand-alone guidebook to these early days of the church.  Hopefully, the articles below will be challenges to read more, know more, and live more like those who received the good news for the first time.

Bookmark this page if you plan to read all of the articles below.

Are you now ready to write your own chapters?
Will your life be a legacy lived for Christ?
Will your faith and hope and love be something that future generations will retell?
My prayer is for all answers in the affirmative.
