Only by God’s grace can anyone experience the transforming life change that comes through Jesus Christ.
God can do amazing things through ordinary people who are empowered by the Holy Spirit. In the book of Acts, the Holy Spirit was given to all believers and the church was born. The church is God's chosen instrument in the world for sharing the good news about Jesus Christ. The book of Acts is all about the unhindered movement of God throughout the world as the gospel of Jesus Christ is proclaimed through the church. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the early church was an unstoppable movement that proclaimed the Kingdom of God and Jesus Christ as the only way to eternal life. Today, the church empowered by the Holy Spirit is called to continue God's redeeming work in the world by fulfilling God's mission of making Jesus known to the ends of the earth.
Challenge: God is at work in the world pursuing and calling people unto salvation. We must never write anyone off by thinking that they are too lost to be saved. God wants His followers to be life-giving ambassadors to people who don’t know God – even to the worst among us. May we never get tired of pursing and praying for people who don’t know God to come to know God through Jesus Christ.
