DIG for Friday the 20th of September…..what He began, the apostles continued and we carry on…..Acts 1 v 1

Acts is more properly known as The Acts of the Apostles.

Here we have an account of how the apostles brought the good news of Jesus to the known world; in other words we read about their acts.

We see the apostles using the power and authority given to them by Jesus to heal, and to deliver and to make people whole.

We see the apostles carrying on this work that Jesus had began, just as we read in Acts 1 v 1.

Nowhere in the book of Acts can I see this ending, I cannot see a verse that says what was began now has to stop.

This is a verse that I cannot see in the whole of scripture.

It means that we are the next in line, we now are to carry on what Jesus began; we are to teach what He taught and do what He did.

Paul write something like this to Timothy (2 Timothy 2 v 1 and 2).

The key to teaching as Jesus did and carrying out the same acts that He did is to be strong in the grace of Jesus Christ.

This means to be strong, or know and understand, what Jesus did and what He accomplished; we need a grasp and understanding of His finished work on the cross.

With this, along with the indwelling Holy Spirit, we can do mighty things through Him and for Him; we can carry on with our own acts.

Acts flowing from knowledge and understanding of Him, His finished work and His grace (Philemon v 6).

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus Christ”.

Acts 1 v 1…..The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach
