The Acts of the Apostles is the fifth book of the New Testament and tells of the founding of the Christian church and the spread of its message to the Roman empire. Acts begins with Jesus’s charge to the Twelve Apostles to spread the Gospel throughout the world. From that point forward, quite simply, the book of Acts tells the story of men and women ON MISSION.
Acts ends with the simple statement about Paul … He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ—with all boldness and without hindrance. (Acts 28:31)
With all boldness and without hindrance … those words popped for me. That is the instruction and example set for how we are to act on our mission, on our plans and intentions.
The month of January is finished and we should be through the important work of visioning, planning, goal setting, etc. Now the focus is on the hard work of execution, follow-through, implementation, accomplishment. Let’s approach that work with all boldness and without hindrance and see what magic happens.
