The Book Of Acts of Apostles is the 44th book of the Bible and the 5th in the new testament arrangement. It has 28 chapters and it was written by Luke the physician. The man who wrote one of the synoptic gospels was named after him. I will like you to study the book of Acts.
We will be reading the book of Acts of Apostles in our church this new month. I will like to invite you to join us. I am not just inviting you to read, I will like you to study the book as well. Studying will give you a deeper understanding of the book and a practical approach to life.
The Book Of Acts: Why You Should Study It
The book essentially talks about the advent of the Holy Spirit and operations and the church. It further went on to discuss two major characters which are Peter and Paul. The book explains the home missions and foreign missions of the apostles. There are many reasons you need to study the book of Acts, here are a few;
The Book Of Acts: The Apostles Acted
You must first realize that the book of acts of the apostles was written because the apostles acted. It’s Not about how long you’ve been in church, it’s about what you are doing to populate the kingdom of God. This book will enhance you with the practical knowledge of how the apostles started and the results they had. Read and follow suit.
How The Church Started
This book gives full details on how the church started. Today, we all know we are the church but very few know how it all started. Very few know how it was managed and delivered to several places from Jerusalem. If you are a true church, you should know your own story.
Signs And Wonders
The Apostles were filled with signs and wonders. It was their reality as a congregation and as individuals. Today, it’s a different ball game. People faking miracles and healings. God have mercy! This book if well studied shows a clear roadmap anyone can follow and arrive at the same point of signs and wonders. Just study the book.
In this book, you will read about a dangerous man called Paul who was transformed into a loving and highly valued instrument in God’s hands. Well, it’s not about how bad you have been, it’s about the glorious future God has for you. Read and see how God transforms lives. Yours is next as you study through.
Also in this book, you will discover an unlearned man that God used mightily. He was harvesting souls for God. God is not limited by your limitations. He is limitless. He can even use the same limitations to work wonders. I mean, how do you explain God sending an unlearned man to the educated and educated to the unlearning. Yet, great results were achieved. You need to read the book of Acts.
He Is No Respecter Of Persons
A careful study of the book shows that God has no respect for color, ethnicity, country, etc. God moves as long as His word is respected and His will fulfilled. So, if you’ve always wanted God to move, follow through this book to know how the Apostles got God to move. Stephen did, so it wasn’t about titles.
The Trials In The Book Of Acts
The Apostles were truly great and God used them to deal with the world immensely. All of that did not happen without trials. They had trials. They were imprisoned, chained, and even beaten. If they saw these things, we will have our own share as well. What matters is to keep standing for God. This is well x-trayed in the book. You can learn it in detail.
As you read the book of Acts of the Apostles, get your note to write what you learn. Don’t just read it alone, please pray along and make a commitment to practice what you are learning. The hallmark of learning to practice. It’s the practice that changes you into a better person. Looking forward to meeting a new you by the end of the month. Shalom!
