Sermons on Acts

Kicking Up Dust

In Acts 6 the church faced a problem due to its growth that could have fractured it. How the Apostles handled it became an example for commissioning leaders.

Leadership as Shepherding

As our church grows and matures there is an expectation that leaders are being grown and matured. We are in a place of prayer and discernment as a congergation to build a Elders Team. Is there someone that comes to mind repeatedly that needs to be considered?

From Possibility to Reality

The early church’s answer to crisis, devastation, and disaster was never hopelessness or resignation, but met with devoted prayer. A need is made known and the church responds by getting on its knees and interceding. What would it look like to be part of a church like that?

Improbable Promises

In light of all the broken promises we experience, it is a wonder we trust anyone at all. So how do we trust a God that makes improbable promises to us? How are we suppose to respond to him? Follow along in the story of how Abram puts his trust in God and his promises.

Never The Same

Because Jesus Is Risen we will never be the same. Will you have an encounter with Jesus and continue to live the same? Or will you be transformed and never be the same?

Hearing God In People

God speaks through people to correct us. How do you know when you are hearing God through others? Maybe your past begins to make sense, you have sense of leading into a specific direction, and maybe even a feeling of disobedience if you ignore the words.  How well are YOU listening to the person of Jesus?

Hearing God In Scripture

The word of God through the Holy Spirit is living, active, powerful, and fresh for today. If God places a word or phrase your heart- get ready because you are going to need it.

The Real Tragedy

Is it a tragedy when a young missionary is killed serving abroad?  Or is there a greater tragedy?  Paul’s mission work in a difficult city provides a framework for how to think about current events. 

Itinerary Change

Unfortunately accidents and disasters get our attention in ways that normal life doesn’t.  In fact, we may listen to voices we might have earlier ignored.  Paul is ignored when he warns about an upcoming disaster.  But the shipwreck gives him a platform to be a voice of hope.
