We come to the end of an epic journey! We began our investigation of Acts back on January 20th of this year. Our text today represents the final few verses. The most remarkable feature of the end of the story of Acts is that it doesn't.... end that is! One would expect the story to build in intensity and come to conclusion by drawing all of the pieces together into a grand climax. Instead the narrative ends rather abruptly, with Paul continuing to do as he as always done - sharing the good news of the Kingdom of God and teaching people about Jesus. The strong implication of this is that actually the story really is not yet finished! The narrative of Acts comes to a finish, but the story continues! We too are witnesses as was Paul along with the other characters we have met along the way. The journey that began with the Ascension of Jesus will continue until the Return of Jesus! We therefore are privileged to stand alongside these characters in the same role as representatives of the risen Jesus in this world! May we take this to heart!
