This day should be full of hope and praise! Every day should be lived in confidence that Jesus is coming again to rule as no other (vv. 24–28).
Hours before Jesus was arrested and crucified he demonstrated selfless service to the disciples. This selfless act showed Jesus’ manner of ministry. Here is an example we are to follow by faith.
The gospel of Jesus supplies Christians with both the means and the end in their pursuit of godliness.
It takes the power of God in salvation to shake a sinner loose from the grips of sin. The gospel is “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Rom 1:16).
The Lord used a miracle to lead to an incarceration to lead to a prison break which led to a family being saved and a testimony going forward. All this resulted in God being glorified.
God providentially organizes and moves missionary teams to throw the net of the gospel far. Powerful witness is not the result of the initiative by men, but the operation of the risen Christ.
At the heart of this debate was the essence of the gospel. Is salvation by grace through faith, or are works of the law also necessary?
Paul did pinpoint preaching, keeping to the subject and hitting the target every time. He made adjustments depending on who his audience was, but the goal was always the gospel of God.
The Son could bring what the Law could not—forgiveness of sins.
Luke shows us men sharing Jesus as the light of the world, and one man being made as blind physically as he was spiritually.
