Acts of God In and Through the Witnesses of Jesus
Our study of the book of Acts will focus primarily on the activity of the Triune God. Setting the stage in chapter one, the Father fulfills a promise (1:4), the Son accomplishes His work of redemption on earth and returns to heaven (1:2-3, 9), and the Holy Spirit empowers believers to be witnesses of this great gospel of salvation (1:8).
The rest of the book gives miraculous details on how God worked in and through His people to spread the message of Jesus Christ from the epicenter of Jerusalem to the ends of the earth. However, this book is not just a historical record of how God worked in antiquity. It is also a reminder that God still powerfully works today through the Holy Spirit so that His people make much of Jesus Christ!
Acts 1:8, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my [Jesus] witnesses.”
