His Power, My Purpose
The day of His resurrection, Jesus appears to two men walking back from Jerusalem to Emmaus. They were filled with hope, but now, assuming Jesus to be dead, are filled with despair. As the story continues they later realize who was walking with them – Jesus! This fills them with such excitement they couldn’t wait to tell the other disciples. As Luke records, in the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts, the work of spreading the Gospel begins with Jesus commission and promise. The transformation of these disciples marks the beginning of what has never stopped, the growth of our Savior’s Kingdom, His Church.
Following the resurrection of Jesus, Luke records the beginnings of the The Way, the followers of Jesus. This included time of great persecution, uncertainty, and shockingly, incredible growth for the Church. In the midst of the Book of Acts are stories of great transformation as the Gospel is proclaimed, shared and lived out. This series will look at some of these stories to better understand our own stories of transformation in the love and truth of Jesus.
