Read Acts 27:1 through 28:31

The apostles were all normal human beings. It’s worth recalling this to understand that the great healings, miracles, and outpourings of the Spirit are woven within the stories of people. They were great people of God, but they were not perfect.

Paul persecuted followers of Christ before his conversion. Peter denied Christ and struggled with how to relate to Gentiles.

Look at the whole Book of Acts, and the clear message is that God chooses to work within humanity’s frailty of spirit. In fact, the greatest expressions of grace are rooted in the deepest failures.

He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance! (Acts 28:31).

Believers today are intended to be part of this amazing story. The Acts of the Apostles didn’t end with Paul in Rome. Today’s Christians are meant to write the next chapters of the book as we proclaim the message of Christ to the world.

Thought for Today:

How will your chapter of this book read?
