The Work has just begun…

In the darkness look up..

In Acts 28, we find that God may have allowed the loss of the cargo, but He preserved the precious souls just as Paul had said to those accompanying him: “Do not be afraid, Paul! God has graciously granted you the safety of all who are sailing with you.”

On the island of Malta, Paul became a servant to show the gospel in living color! Paul served by picking up sticks to add to the bonfire. Paul had learned well, “The greatest among you will be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” [Matt 23]

God does the same for us today, using ordinary people to carry out His divinely appointed plans. As we close the pages of this marvelous historical record, we are left with this thought: The Work has just begun— and “that until the fulfillment of the angels’ prophecy that ‘this same Jesus’ shall return even as He went away, the Work of evangelization for this age will not be completed. We are to heed the Word—’ Occupy till I come.’ [Ironside]
