TOPIC: LUKE WRITES THEOPHILUS
TEXT: ACTS 1:1-5
MEMORY VERSE: “It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus” (LUKE 1:3).
Luke, a physician and a companion of Paul the Apostle, authored the books of Acts of the Apostles and the Gospel of Saint Luke in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. The books were addressed to a high rank Roman official by the name, Theophilus. Luke's courtesy in the use of appropriate words in his introduction leaves no one in doubt about the personality he addressed. While writing or speaking, we must use agreeable words and appropriate official titles (Proverbs 25:11; Proverbs 15:23; Judges 5:14; Ezekiel 9:2). Luke wrote about the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, based on his personal encounter with the Lord. His writing is enlightening, edifying, persuasive and consistent with the whole gamut of scriptural truth. He remains a blessing to generations of people. You can use your skills and talents to bless others. With a sense of commitment, Luke felt compelled to write to Theophilus. You have friends and relations who are not saved and who may be far away. You can write to them. The social media platform affords this great opportunity. Start today.
