What women are saying about this study:
“I recently needed to study the book of Acts for some training. I had a hard time reading this book because of all the “drama” in it. That’s when I started looking for people who studied this with joy. I came across your Bible Study (Radical Acts), and it has been a blessing to me. Thanks for bringing the truth to us the way you do. Your study changed my approach to reading the Bible.” (Yvonne)
“My small group just finished your Radical Acts study, and we wanted to say, “Thank you!” We enjoyed it so much and have grown tremendously in our faith. The level of detail and wisdom you put into that study was tremendous and the podcasts are fantastic! We had read Acts many times before (or thought we did) without really absorbing any of the teachings. We are now ready to go on our God adventure!” (Anne)
“My daughter spoke to the middle school youth this morning about Paul. If I had not done this study, I would have no idea what she was talking about. Before this, I didn’t know Paul’s story and the impact he had. I didn’t know about Peter. I didn’t know the story of Ananias. It was so wonderful to sit there this morning & be able to connect fully with her message.” (Melodye)
Although the author does not name himself, evidence from the text leads to the conclusion that the author was Luke, the physician and traveling companion of Paul (Colossians 4:14; 2 Timothy 4:11; Philemon 24). Certain passages using the pronoun “we” indicate the author includes himself as Paul’s companion on his journeys. Some word choices in both Luke and Acts suggest that a medical man was the author of these books (Acts 28:6). So, we are confident that Luke wrote the books of Luke and Acts.
Reason to study Acts #1. To understand how to live out your life in Christ. Acts is a book of history as it records the acts of Jesus Christ by His Spirit through His Church. Acts is a book of theology. You will see how theology is lived out, evidence for the inspiration of scripture, and proof that the gospel message has never changed. Acts is a book of biography and human relationships. You will see the fire of the Spirit erupting in the lives of people who are touched by the Spirit and changed forever.
Reason to study Acts #2. To connect with your spiritual heritage.Gain a connection and appreciation for those who obeyed Jesus by spreading the gospel everywhere they went. They reached people like you who never saw Jesus face-to-face but learned to believe in Him as Savior and Lord.
Reason to study Acts #3. Because you need spiritual adventure.Within the history, theology, biography, and relationships, this marvelous book introduces you to adventure with Jesus Christ. The adventure definitely includes the unexpected. Adventure rarely means easy. But, it never means alone. The Holy Spirit is with you and me every day and forever. Making wise decisions is part of the adventure. Read my blog “Trusting Jesus When Making Decisions” to help you do this. Read my blog “Holy Spirit Hot Spots” to get excited about doing this study.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. Our God is one God but three persons. The Spirit is not an impersonal “it” or simply an influence but a personal being just as the Father and the Son are persons. He is the first gift we receive from God when we trust in Jesus for salvation. He delivers to us the blessing jewels in our treasure chest. The Holy Spirit regenerates the believer, giving new spiritual life the moment someone believes in Jesus. He also marks every Christian with the seal of God’s ownership.
