Missions was part of the church from day one. We might think it starts with Acts 2, but really it started with the waiting upon the Lord in Acts 1. The Book of Acts is so mission oriented that we cannot ignore it. True, people and churches avoid studying the book because they do not like its aggressive and style of expansion, but this does not change its message: The Holy Spirit is working in His people to bring the Gospel to the ends of the world. There is no barrier so high, no government so difficult or religious group so zealous that can hold back the process of the Gospel. ￼Let us now look at this passage and discover four ways through a slice in Jesus’ life how we can be more ready for missions.
