He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ – with all boldness and without hindrance. With these words, the book of Acts comes to an end. What happens next? Luke does not tell us. Will Paul have his trial before Caesar? The New Testament does not tell us.
But then, this is not really the story of Paul, is it? This is the story of the Lord Jesus Christ. The book of Acts is not an ending but a beginning. We now step into that beginning – with all boldness and without hindrance.
Lord, enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders in the name of your holy servant Jesus. Amen.
