The Acts of the Apostles is a wonderful book, showing us how the early church spread the gospel, bringing healing, abundance, joy and peace.
We see the early church going into the world in the power of the Holy Spirit teaching and spreading the good news.
Luke, who wrote the Book of Acts, tells us that Jesus started this process (Acts 1 v 2).
He brought healing and salvation, He began to do this; in the Gospels we read what Jesus started to do and started to teach.
Luke then goes on to say that this task has passed onto the apostles (Acts 1 v 2).
In Acts we read how Peter and John, Philip and Paul (among others) carried on this “work” originating through Jesus.
People are saved, people are healed and people are set free from bondage.
And the great thing that I see when reading Acts, and indeed the rest of the Bible, is that this process has never stopped.
The Holy Spirit aided Jesus and aided the apostles.
He has not returned to Heaven yet, so He is still here to aid you to carry on from Jesus and the apostles.
We are living in the same “times” as the apostles, we are meant to do the same as them and carry on the work of Jesus.
Healing has not stopped, abundance has not ceased and the Holy Spirit has not left us!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the Holy Spirit and thank you that you want us to spread the Gospel, releasing salvation, healing and abundance”.
Acts 1 v 1 and 2…..The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments until the apostles whom he had chosen
