This sermon is an in-depth study of the book of Acts. In Acts, we learn about the history of the emerging church and the actions of the Apostles of Jesus Christ. We pray you join us for this important lesson.
Continuing the Work of Jesus (Acts 1:1-5)
Pastor Charlie talks to us today about the first versus of Acts and how Jesus commanded his Apostles to spread his word before ascending up to heaven. It is through these versus that we learn how the church began and how the Apostles spread the word.
Acts 1:1-5 (ESV)
In the first book, O Theophilus, I have dealt with all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when he was taken up, after he had given commands through the Holy Spirit to the apostles whom he had chosen. He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God. And while staying with them he ordered them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which, he said, "you heard from me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now."
