A Radical Escape
Every chapter in the book of Acts is full of radical adventures as the disciples of Jesus become a community of people called the Church. The story follows the lives of individuals – from Peter the apostle, to Rhoda the servant girl. In this chapter, we see the miraculous escape of Peter from prison and his humorous interaction with the church who couldn’t believe that he was standing at the door. There are lessons for us to learn about prayer, about faith, and about playing our part in the mission of Jesus like those disciples who have gone before us. We will face challenges along the way, we may disappoint ourselves and others, but God is faithful and he will guide us into all that he has planned for our lives and for his church.
