God can do amazing things through ordinary people when He empowers them through His Spirit. The book of Acts shows how God essentially took a group of fisherman and commoners and uses them to turn the world upside down. God took a Christian hating murderer and transformed him into history’s greatest Christian evangelist, the author of almost half the books of the New Testament. God can and does do the same through us, changing our hearts, empowering us by the Holy Spirit and giving us a passion to spread the good news of salvation through Jesus. if we try to accomplish God’s work in the world in our own power, we will fail. Acts also reminds us of the importance of prayers. There is a reference to prayer 31 times in the book and prayer is present before almost any significant event described by Luke. Miracles are preceded by prayer, decisions are preceded by prayer, we can learn a lot about the power of prayer.
