Just a little trivia for you.
Here’s another one that most of you probably already know. The Bible is actually many books.
And the one that’s been weighing on me lately is the Acts of the Apostles. It’s not the Apostle’s Journey, or the Teachings of the Apostles. It’s not the Philosophy of the Apostles, or even the Prayers of the Apostles.
It’s the ACTS of the Apostles.
Why have we even heard of Christianity?
Because many years ago, a man left his home, his family and his career. He found someone in a town that he did not know. And then he proceeded to tell that person that his best friend that just died… is the Son of Man.
The ACTS of You… How is that one going to read?
