Witnesses


Read Acts 1:1-8. What important truths about the kingdom of God are being expressed here?


The kingdom of God was foremost in the mind of Luke as he wrote a sequel to his Gospel, in the form of a brief history of the early church. In the opening lines of that historical account, the book of Acts, Luke states there fundamental truths regarding the kingdom of God.

First, be sure that Jesus will come again. For 40 days between His resurrection and ascension, the Lord continued to teach what He had taught the disciples before His crucifixion: “things pertaining to the kingdom of God” (Acts. 1:3, NKJV). The mighty events of the cross and the resurrection had not changed anything in the teaching of Jesus in regard to the kingdom; if anything, for 40 days the risen Jesus continued to impress on the disciples the reality of the kingdom.

Second, be waiting for Jesus to come again in God’s own time. After His resurrection, Jesus’ disciples asked a serious and anxious question: “’Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?”’ (Acts. 1:6, NKJV). Jesus did not answer the question but corrected the disciples’ perspective: God must always be God; to probe His mind, to predict the preciseness of His plans, to penetrate His secrets is not His secrets is not the task of flesh and blood. He knows when the kingdom of glory should come, and He will bring it to pass in He is own time (Acts 1:7, Matt. 24:36), just as “when the fullness of the time had come” (Gal. 4:4) He sent His Son to inaugurate the kingdom of grace.

Third, be witnesses to the gospel of Jesus. Christ redirected the disciples from speculation about what is not known-when the kingdom of glory will come-to what is known and must be done. The time of the Second Coming is not revealed, but we are called upon to wait for that glorious day and to “occupy” till then (Luke 19:13). This means that we should be involved in taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to “the end of the earth” (Acts 1:8, NKJV). That is our responsibility-not in our own strength but by the power of the Holy Spirit, promised to be poured out on all those who shall be witnesses to what they have seen and heard (vss. 4-8).


The faithful followers of Jesus till had some big misconceptions about the nature of Christ’s work. And yet, the Lord was using them anyway. What message might there be for us about not needing to fully understand everything in order to still be used by God?
