  • What To Do When Bad Things Happen To God's People

    Contributed by Richard A. Bradley on Mar 5, 2012
    based on 19 ratings

    God's people often ask "Why has this happened to me?" However, God is not so much interested in why as "what." In this fallen world we cannot prevent bad things from happening. What we do in response to them is another question.

    WHEN BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOD’S PEOPLE? Acts 16:25-34 25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the more

  • When God Opens Hearts, And Opposition Comes Series

    Contributed by Greg Nance on Nov 14, 2011
    based on 1 rating

    God directed Paul to Philippi to preach the gospel. Acts 16 reveals both the open hearted reception and the opposition he faced. We should expect the same when we share Christ today.

    When God opens hearts he comes into them to dwell. Acts 16 gives us the history of how the gospel was planted in Philippi, how God opened their hearts to hear and obey the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This lesson continues our introduction to the letter of Philippians. Let's read more

  • The Question And The Only Right Answer To It

    Contributed by David Mcnally on May 5, 2014

    The question which the Philippian jailer asked Paul and Silas 2,000 years ago is still relevant today and we have to encourage people to ask it, and no matter how 'diverse' or 'multi-cultural' our society is, there is only one correct answer to it.

    Psalm 34:1-9 and 17-22 (all) emphasize v.22 Acts 16: 16-34 Sermon: What must I do to be Saved? There's only one answer to that question. “Saved”. A little 5-letter word usually being the past tense of the verb “save” which means 'set free' or more

    Every morning and every evening the head of a Jewish household would pray, giving thanks that God had not created him “a Gentile, a woman or a slave.” It hardly seems coincidental that the first three conversions which take place at Philippi, come from those three despised categories.

  • Where Is Our Focus?

    Contributed by T.j. Conwell on Aug 19, 2013

    Life is never going to be easy, so sharing the Gospel will not be easy work! Jesus taught us this, the Disciples knew this as truth, so when it comes to sharing Christ will we submit to Him or still remain focused on ourselves?

    Where is our Focus? Acts 16:16-40 Introduction The Christian brothers and sisters at Antioch had good reason to rejoice -- They had been at the center of a great controversy; and stood firm in it -- The controversy? Answering, “What must we do to be saved?” Two more
