The Acts

Mar 20, 2022 | Seminarian Brandon Boos

Acts 4:32-37

The Book of Acts is full of powerful miracles of healing and people coming to believe in Jesus as Lord. It can lead us to ask why we don’t see the same kind of miracles today. What we will discover is that God used many different types of miracles to grow the early church and He is still doing miracles today, although they might look different than we expect.

Series Information

Our daily reading plan has led us to the book of Acts.  The author of the book of Acts is the historian Luke, who was inspired by the Holy Spirit to recount not only the accurate details of Jesus’ life in the gospel of Luke, but also the historical account of the birth of the Church in the book of Acts.  The book of Acts is sometimes thought to be named so because it is the “acts” of the Apostles, or the acts of the early church.  Another way of thinking about it is to see the book as a record of the “acts” of the Holy Spirit -- poured out on Pentecost and filling new baptized believers who spread the the good news of the resurrected Christ in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and ultimately to the ends of the earth. There are twenty-nine chapters in the book, but Acts 29 and beyond is still being written today through the lives of all believers today.
