All along the Spirit has been moving in power to enable to gospel to overcome opposition. Now we come to a new stage in the mission. Chapters 1-6 were about the gospel in Jerusalem -- a Community Ablaze. Chapters 7-12 are about the gospel in Judea and Samaria, the areas around Jerusalem -- The Unleashed Word. Now, beginning with Chapter 13, the mission expands even further, pressing on the ends of the earth as Jesus had promised. Jesus Christ is the Worldwide Savior.
Jesus has died and rose again and is Lord of all and the Savior of all who will repent and believe in him. This good news of the gospel, this message of salvation by grace alone, has been appointed to go to the ends of the earth. One day, every nation will worship Christ as Savior and King.
