As we continue our study on the book of Acts, we come to the point of the book that introduces the church. God called us to be witnesses to others. Sometimes we want to be a judge and condemn people for their wrongdoings but God did not call us to be judges! The job of a witness is to give account for what they have seen. We are supposed to tell others what has happened to us. The bible is pretty simple about what we are supposed to do and how we are supposed to do it, all we have to do is trust and follow God.

Wings of an Eagle

The Bible says “But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles” (Isaiah 40:31, KJV). How far do you think an eagle could fly if it only had one wing? The wings of the eagle are prayer and praise. We need them both to keep going. Without one we are lost! Prayer is spending intimate time with God. If we can focus on a football team for hours and praise them, why can’t we spend time with God and praise Him? It is easy for us to praise God when good things happen to us but sometimes we need to praise him in our struggle. Sometimes, it takes sacrifice to praise, but that may be when God appreciates it the most. When you press though and praise Him, it not only benefits you but it can cause someone else to be free. Your praise can even cause your enemies to want to be saved. The eagle is the perfect depiction of strength. When a storm comes, the eagle is able to fly into the storm and it’s wings lift it up above the storm. Let your prayer and praise lift you up above the storm!

The Book of Acts (Part 1)

The Book of Acts is also known as the Acts of the apostles or the Acts of the Holy Spirit. Luke wrote the Book of Acts as a sequel to his account of the life of Jesus Christ in the Book of Luke. Luke told the story of Jesus from the standpoint that Jesus Christ was 100% human being. He was all man, just like us. In the Bible Jesus is mentioned first as a baby, then at the age of twelve when he stayed behind in the temple conversing with the scholars, then at the age of 30 when his ministry began. He spent his whole life preparing for a ministry that lasted less than four years. The first thing he did, when he began his ministry, was go to John the Baptist and ask to be baptized by him. Next he was led into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil where he fasted and prayed for 40 days. He did all of this before he even chose his disciples. He was passionate about us as we should be about him.
