Living Spiritual Rhythms–April 23

Luke’s writings in the New Testament are a marvel. Not only does he set his story in world history, Lk 2:1 and 3:1, but Paul’s speech in Acts 26 confirms that the events he announces and proclaims were not done in private.

This founding narrative for Christianity exemplifies the power of God in portraying that the Word will prevail against all internal or external threats to silence it. As Gamaliel states it to the religious elite: if this is of God you won’t be able to overthrow them – in that case you may even be found fighting against God.
