    Following the guidance of the Holy Spirit and being willing to get out of our comfort zone.

    A lot had happened to the church since where we left off in chapter four. Persecution of Christians broke out in Jerusalem (primarily at the hands of Saul), the Christians have become targets, so all but the Apostles flee Jerusalem. Doesn’t sound like a very good situation, people forced to ...read more

    Our prejudices, our doubts, our fears prevent us from entering the lives of, sharing Christ with, and extending grace to those who are far from God.

    As we read through this familiar passage for many of us, listen or follow along in your Bibles or pew Bibles, I want you to begin thinking about this question I will ask again at the end: is there anyone you know that you have thought, ‘this person is too far gone,’ or have written them off. ...read more

    Acts reminds us that we also need to be praying with others to see God�s power at work.

    Although unusual by todays standards, fasting unleashes the power of God in our prayer life.

    During the summer we�ve been going through the book of Acts. Do yourself a favor and read the book of Acts this summer to remind yourself about the power and work of the Holy Spirit.

    We are called to live in freedom, freedom not to live for ourselves, but freedom to follow Christ.

    What comes to your mind when I say the word "freedom?" Freedom from slavery, freedom from hunger, freedom from poverty, or freedom from tyranny? Many of us would say freedom from sin. The Bible is clear when we trust in Jesus, and believe he took our sins upon himself on the cross and died so ...read more

    We are an avenue of Gods grace to other Christians, even the ones who disappoint or hurt us.

    This story quite honestly is a troubling one to me. Can I say that? Is it okay for me to say that? The reason it troubles me is because up until this point in the book of Acts, when the church had a disagreement (and they had some very significant ones), they worked through them and came to a ...read more
