At the start of Acts, we find the church at a critical point in its history. Jesus had been with the disciples, teaching them God’s truth and preparing them for their ministry. Now He had to leave them so that the next part of the plan for God’s kingdom could happen: the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. Alistair Begg leads us through a study that captures the fear and excitement of experiencing God’s outworking plan.
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.”
