acts

It was forty days after His resurrection that Jesus stood on the Mount of Olives, bid good-bye to His followers, and was lifted from their sight. This is when the Book of Acts begins. Acts is not a doctrinal book, but a story. The events chronicled in this book span approximately thirty years. Scholars place the authorship of Acts in the hands of Luke, a physician and traveling companion of the Apostle Paul. 


Sometimes our Christian journey can get exhausting and boring. And sometimes the one-time blazing fire gets snuffed out. Hence, we become complacent and apathetic. In turn, we are not useful to God's kingdom work when we are simply just going through the motions. The first sentence to a popular campfire song is, "It only takes a spark to get a fire going." For any believer, a study in the book of Acts can certainly be that fire-starter many of us desperately need. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, even if your fire is blazing, this Bible study is for you. The early believers were on fire for God. Thousands were coming to Christ every day in those early days. Nothing could stop their witness - not even persecution.
