Acts: the church that witnesses
Our new Acts series begins with the same question the disciples posed to Jesus after his death and resurrection, and before his ascension; when is God's kingdom going to come, and what will it look like when it does? As usual, Jesus' kingdom vision is very different to his disciples'. The primary characteristic of his kingdom is that it will enable first-hand knowledge of God, and that those who experience it will become witnesses to others. This is good news to us today, because this same Jesus still enables us to know God and to share His love with others.
