Walking Alongside Each Other – Acts 8:26-40
The book of Acts has this international feel to it. After the gospels have described the ministry of Jesus in Galilee and Judea, locally bound within a stretch of about 130 miles, now, in the book of Acts, the Christian movement just explodes. Already at the moment of Pentecost which we can read about in Acts, chapter 2, Peter addresses a crowd of people from Asia, Africa and Europe. And then Peter and Paul set out on long missionary journeys all over the Mediterranean World. When we hear the words “Global Mission”, we might associate contemporary organizations, but the concept is not as new as it might seem to us today. The Christians in the Book of Acts have been walking alongside each other, overcoming boundaries of race, class, gender, economic standing, culture and politics.
