RE Verse reading–Acts 1:1-8 (day four) “The first account (was) about all that Jesus began to do and teach, until the day when He was taken up to heaven” (vs 1-2) It is a uniquely Christian perspective. When we gather for worship or read a newsfeed, we do not remember a dead leader. Christ is still working in the world. We do not think of Him in the past. He is “at the right hand of God” and present in the church through the person of the Holy Spirit. What He BEGAN to do is written in Luke. What He CONTINUED to do is written in Acts. What He CONTINUES to do is written in the history of our church and thousands of others around the world. “It is better for you that I go away”, said the Lord to the disciples (John 16:7) “As the Father has sent me, so send I you” (John 20:21). Nothing has changed. The work continues.
