This week’s reading is a very long passage in the book of Acts. It is one of the longest we’ll look at during our journey through the book and is meant to be read all together. The Apostle Paul has now made it to Jerusalem, a stop on the way to his destination, Rome. Heading to Rome will not be easy, as Paul endeavors to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). But, ultimately, Paul’s journey is not Paul’s journey. God is at work in Paul, as we’ve been reminded numerous times, and continues to work out that which He initially began in Paul. We are told, once again, of Paul’s conversion, given a few new details and see, through Paul, all that God has and is still accomplishing.
Our own Christian journeys mirror Paul’s, in that God has always been and always will be at work our Christian lives. We all experience the drama, the ups and downs and the surprises life throws us, just as Paul did. Yet, even in all these things, God is still at work. They don’t happen haphazardly and without purpose. This week, we’re going to look at the ways in which God is at work in our lives and consider what we are to make of it all.
