Battle Discontentment with Community

If you struggle with contentment, I would encourage you to watch this short 2 minute video (Community Costs).  Being a part of a church plant is not easy.  Some of us have moved away from family to be here.  Some of us have moved away from friends that we have history with to see the […]

Isaiah 6:1-8 Why the Nations?

  Now who’s the object of Christianity? God is. And everything is made to center around Him. God doesn’t bless us to center on us; He blesses us for His sake. He pours out grace and salvation on us for His sake. Who of us would be so arrogant as to think that we are […]

Acts 15 – The Purity of the Gospel in Salvation by Grace Alone

  The Apostles did not believe in self-righteousness. The creed of the world is, “Do your best and it will be all right with you.” To question this is treason against the pride of human nature, which evermore clings to salvation by its own merits. Every man is born a Pharisee. Self-confidence is bred in […]

Acts 14 Faithfulness to Follow Christ Amidst Opposition

  The Apostles had finished their work in the Antioch of Pisidia in a great storm. Can that be true, a sweet word of God, which so violently impassions men and divides quiet cities into hostile camps? It would seem as if the heavenly word would surely bring heavenly peace along with it, and seal […]

Acts 13:13-52 God is Working in All of History

  Don’t take this kind of narration of history for granted. Let it strike you as strange as it really is. Is this the way you tell stories about what happened? When you tell somebody about the past, do you say, “God did this and God did that and God did that and God did […]

Acts 13:1-12 Worship, Prayer, and Fasting as Precursors for Missions

Observe carefully the definiteness of this declaration as to the activity of the Spirit: “The Holy Spirit said.” He made known His will to these people, so that they had neither doubt nor uncertainty in their minds. Moreover this is not the picture of a Church choosing men to be sent forth on missionary enterprise. […]

Acts 12 – The Grace of God in Prayer

  When a case is put into God’s hands, he will certainly manage it well, and he will interfere in sufficient time to bring his servants out of their distress. Peter’s case was put into God’s hands. The company that met at the house of Mary, the mother of Mark, were appealing to the great […]

Acts 11:19-30 God Uses Church Planting To Accomplish His Purposes

  If you could cut the heart of God, you would find that God bleeds church planting. Let me explain. God’s passion is that His kingdom will spread to all peoples. His plan is that His kingdom increase through church planting. Fred Herron makes this case following a careful study of the Word of God. […]

Acts 11:1-18 The Significance of the Gospel For All Men

  If our text tells us anything it is that the gospel has priority. The gospel also has profound implications. If the gospel is God’s promise and God’s possession, then it is His to give, to whomever He chooses. The gospel was for sinners, Jew or Gentile. The gospel was God’s means of providing salvation […]
