What better way to reignite our evangelistic passion than to go to the book of Acts? This entire section of Acts shows God using ordinary and at times reluctant people to spread ‘the unleashed word’ of the gospel out beyond Jerusalem. And seeing how God worked back then is a powerful motivator when it comes to loving the lost and sharing the gospel today.
Chris Green, in his book entitled The Word of His Grace, says “One direct consequence of an encounter with Acts must be that our evangelistic passion is reignited.”
Luke begins the section by showing us the worst thing that can happen to us as we speak of Christ, and he shows us that it is gloriously worth it. Stephen is rejected and killed, but Jesus is there at the right hand of God, where is remains even today, and he uses even opposition and rejection to carry out his purposes and spread his word.
