What in your opinion is the most inspirational book in the Bible?

The teens at Roots offer us a string of interesting questions every month – we take potshots at answering them. This one is so cool. Here’s my thoughts. Feel free to add your own.

Acts is, I think, the most inspirational book in the Bible. It is all about what Jesus is doing through the ongoing work of the church – through people like us! It is all about how we are so futile when we try by ourselves, but so powerful when we allow God to work through us. It’s amazing that the work of Jesus is still going on, through amazing characters like Paul, but equally through weaklings like Timothy, business women like Lydia, or cool mentor-type married couples like Priscilla and Aquila. Plus, there’s no chapter 29. The story isn’t over yet.
