A Peace That Defies Reason

by

It’s Thanksgiving and in these unsettling and bewildering times in our world, it is good to reminded that, for the believer, our thankfulness is not dependent on external factors such as health or wealth or politics but it is anchored in a peace that defies reason. It is rooted in the sense of well-being that we […]

The Battle for Hearts and Minds

by

Clearly the war was won by Christ on the cross when He defeated sin, death and Satan. Until He returns, the battle rages on for people’s hearts and minds. Our passage today gives an example for us to follow as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission

The Call

by

2017-09-24  In our passage this week, Paul and Barnabas are called by the Holy Spirit to go on a mission together to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The original church in Jerusalem would have largely been ethnically Jewish and the new […]

When Being All Things to All People is Justified

2017-08-20  As the first church transitioned from its earliest Jewish roots to a church for people from a wide array of backgrounds, Paul held up a standard to guide religious practice…the laws of Christ…the law of love. The new freedom the disciples found in Christ was never to be used as a license but when […]

Two Weird Visions…and Unclean is Clean

by

2017-08-14 As we follow the narrative of Acts we are beginning to see the implications of Christ’s introduction of a New Covenant. Last week our focus was on how Christ’s work of atonement rendered the sacrificial system of the Law obsolete. This week, we see that the purification rites of the law became non-binding and ultimately […]
