We are often asking God for closure and looking for it as we end seasons. The book of Acts does not end in a neat fashion. No bow is tied and not much of the plot is resolved. Instead, it ends with Paul faithfully awaiting a trial and continuing to serve people and preach the gospel. Here, in this story at the end of the book of Acts, we are invited to receive God’s strange gift of perseverance: as Eugene Peterson said, we are invited to "a long obedience in the same direction," no matter the results.
