In Acts 1:8 Jesus told His disciples that when the Holy Spirit came upon them, which He did in Acts 2, they would be His witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth. Acts 13-28 is the record of the gospel’s advance to the ends of the earth. What began in Jerusalem (ch. 1) will make its way to Rome (ch. 28). What started with the Jews will make its way to the Gentiles. What started with its focus on Peter (chs. 1-12) will conclude with its focus on Paul (chs. 13-28). The Holy Spirit will direct every step. Jesus will be exalted at every turn. The gospel will go forth in unstoppable power.
Central to God’s character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God’s holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don’t quite know what to do with words like “awe” or “fear.” R. C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christians to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same.
