We Believe In Sharing The Gospel
This is one of my favorite moments in the Bible. The Book of Acts is considered to be the second part of the Gospel of Luke, kind of a sequel. Acts tells the story of what happens after Christ’s resurrection and ascension into heaven. The full title is “Acts of the Apostles,” and though it only mentions Peter by name, the book begins with Jesus’ chosen twelve – well, eleven now without Judas. After they replace Judas, we hear the story of Pentecost – what we consider the birth of the Christian church and then we’re given this piece that we read today – my favorite part. Here we have the story of a movement reborn. Even without Jesus who led them for three years, the apostles are able to continue sharing the Gospel – the good news. They gather new followers and here, in these few verses, we’re painted a picture of what seems to be a perfect church, committed to learning, gathering together, breaking bread, and praying.
