Luke’s second volume, the book of Acts, continues the story of the Gospel’s spread. As Jesus instructed His disciples on their mission, He corrected their preoccupation with self, directing their focus instead toward the expansion of His kingdom. Then, on the day of Pentecost, God established a pattern for world missions that continues to this day. Alistair Begg encourages us that despite cultural differences throughout the world, the Gospel overcomes every barrier, reaching people as they are, where they are.
6So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. 8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
