Sermons on Acts
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?
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?
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.
What do we see in David that is truly unique and teaches us about being “A person after God’s own heart?”
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.
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.
