It is exciting to study the book of Acts. Although we have four biographies of the life of Jesus, we have only one account giving the history of the early church. The Spirit of God wisely inspired and preserved this record.
Acts covers the first thirty-two years of church history, concluding with Paul’s Roman imprisonment. Without this record little would be known of the progress of the gospel under the leadership of the apostles. Acts then is priceless as a record of this period of history. Without it we would know little of Peter’s and Paul’s missionary labors.
But it is more than an interesting document recording as section of ancient history. It is inspirational in character, motivating the current church to do exploits for God. If God could work then in power saving souls can He not do the same today? Is not the church indwelt by the same, might Holy Spirit?
It is the author’s prayer that this study will help illuminate the text for the reader. Understanding must precede action. May it also inspire the one reading to greater love and devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ. And may churches be gripped by the simplicity of structure and the power of the early church.
It is still possible today to emulate that pattern. “Mimic me” is the plea of Paul (1 Cor. 11:1). The power and structure of the apostolic church are available to God’s people today.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
