The book of Acts begins with miracles. Jesus ascends, the Holy Spirit descends, thousands of people recognise Jesus as their long-awaited Messiah, and these new Christians are together in love, friendship and meeting each other’s needs. But not everyone is excited. In Acts chapter 4, we encounter the church’s first experience with persecution.
Today’s church can learn from the early church how to remain faithful and active even when the cost is great. Join us this Sunday for Part 3 in our series Acts: Jesus’ Mission.
