The end of Acts! Unbelievable!
Observation—It seemed like a little anticlimactic end! Like the author was just trying to wrap it all up neatly. It seems like Paul never got “out”. He seemed to stay under house arrest for a long time for something he wasn’t even guilty for! The last verse was even an “happily ever after” sort of verse. Paul lived forever with no one bothering him and him being able to spread his word. Those were the last words about Paul.
Application: It made me wonder what the last words someone would say about me would be. “She loved Starbucks, her mama and her cell phone?” Would they be “she bravely preached about God’s kingdom and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ” That’s what Luke said about Paul. What would they say about you? Will your legacy be involved with Jesus’ love?
Prayer—God, we want to leave a legacy for you. May we be worthy of our title as your children. May we be worthy of the life you have given us. May we be radical in our love for you! Amen
