Glad Over Grace

When we as believers begin to realize that the Lord’s plans and ways are right, the result is phenomenal.  When God was increasing the early church, Acts 11:19-30, we see that it was done through His grace for His glory.  As the apostles and disciples shared the gospel message of Jesus, people came to faith. Lives were changed and cities were reached.  The spreading…

Freedom In Christ

When we think of our walk with Jesus, we are give the ability to be free of all the things that have enslaved us. We need to live in the freedom that was given to us on our behalf by our Lord. As we reflect this weekend on the freedoms that we enjoy in our country, may we not forget that the freedom of a nation and our freedom in Christ isn’t free, it cost…

God’s Plan and Purpose

When God is involved in life, He has a plan, a purpose and a way. He takes in Acts 10 and moves a man that knew of Him and feared Him and purposed that he would KNOW God personally.  Moving in unexpected and socially unexpected ways, God uses a Peter from a whole different lifestyle and culture to bring the Gospel of Jesus to man, his family and friends.  Despite our…

God’s Calmness in the midst of Chaos

When Saul in Act 9:23-43 finds himself as the Hunter now the Hunted is in the midst of chaos. The paralytic and the disciple Tabitha’s death puts others in chaos, God moves in and in the eye of the storm brings peace and growth. The gospel message moved in the regions just as Jesus said it would and it came in the midst of chaos then calmness! When you find your…

Jesus The Son of God

As we see Saul’s conversion take place, in Acts 9, we now see the same man radically changed. The transformation in his life took root and grew to the point that the synagogue he was going to go to and create a mess as well as the new followers of Jesus would be taken, jailed and possibly killed were hearing the truth of the Son of God being told by him. How does…

No Possible Way!

When we see people around us that are horrific in their lifestyle, we often say there is no possible way that God would save them. Whether a mass murder, rapist, terrorist or whomever, we often write them off. God however, hasn’t and doesn’t write them off. He love all as we see in John 3:16 and has made a way to have a personal relationship with them. Just…

Divine Appointments

I apologize that the end of the sermon did not get recorded. With at said, we are looking at the way God directs us to follow in obedience to His call and His leading. The way we do this is to be immersed in Him, His Word and to listen to the still small voice that He speaks with inside each person that follows Jesus fully.  We see how Philip listened and the Ethiopian…

A Serious Warning

Often times we skirt around the issue of true faith in Jesus as well as the matters of the battle in the supernatural realm. In Acts 8 we see Simon the sorcerer seeing the full power of God and wants it for personal and selfish reasons/motives. His heart was not right and his motive was off base. He has a non-saving faith and also a wow factor believe/amazement at the…

Got Persecution?

In the early church, they encountered difficulties and joyous times. We are also going to or already experiencing that.  As we see, joy is in the suffering, the pain, the hurt and the struggle when we go through it with God.  As you look at His Word in this message, may you find strength, courage and endurance to go through whatever you are going through.  I pray for you,…

His Story

As we look at Act 7 we see that Stephen prove that God is who He said He was, is and His promises. His story is one of Truth and Grace and it woven through out the Old and New Testament. Stephen respectfully tells God’s story, ones these religious leaders knew very well as the evidence of who God is. Not wanting to hear the truth as they couldn’t handle the…
