    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Aug 24, 2004
    based on 35 ratings

    The Ethiopian Eunuch didn’t understand the Bible until someone explained it to him. The whole Bible points to Jesus’ life death and resurrection.

    In a few minutes we’ll say the creed, as we do most weeks, and we’ll repeat these words almost without thinking: "For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again - in accordance with the Scriptures." I wonder whether we ever stop more

    God’s purpose for the church will be accomplished. But will we be part of it? That depends.

    The theme of Acts is not just the works of the apostles but that nothing stops God from spreading His word.

    And the Gospel goes on. Acts 8:1-24 Very anticlimactically written, from this point on there is a shift from Peter and John to a man named Saul. Saul is introduced as being present when Stephen was stoned and that he gave his approval. Dr. Luke gives us insight into Saul and then will compare it more

    Contributed by Sherie Mercier on Feb 12, 2005
    based on 25 ratings

    If we like Phillip, not get caught up in preaching the Word to masses, but go to one soul, it is worth it.

    1 SOUL IS WORTH IT Acts 8:1-8, 12-17 & 25-40 Today’s message is having to do with going after the one soul, the one life for Jesus. As believers, we should pursue the salvation of even one soul as we never know what that person’s life will bring about to the glory of God and to His kingdom. more

  • The Church Moving Forward With Its Mission

    Contributed by Billy Ricks on Oct 9, 2005
    based on 40 ratings

    When a church is on mission for Christ there are three things the devil wants to do to its members and its body. Embarass, Imprison, and Embalm you. But God will do three things if we are on Mission for Him. Encourage, Empower, and Enrich our lives.

    Intro: When a church has seen no one “won” or witnessed to the Lord Jesus Christ it will be left alone by the devil. However, if the church is not fulfilling its mission of sharing its faith with the lost the Lord Jesus Christ will correct it. Whether it is financial difficulty, terrible more
