Sermons on Acts
When our lives aren’t anchored in Christ and we encounter a storm it’s easy for us to get lost in the darkness of the storm. In Acts 27, Paul shows us with God’s presence, God’s purpose, and God’s promise we can gain stability in life’s storms.

God speaks through people to correct us. How do you know when you are hearing God through others?

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.
