ACTS: A Tale of Two Cities

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times,
It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness,
It was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
It was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness,
It was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.

- Charles Dickens, “A Tale of Two Cities"

Those famous words about life in late 18th Century cities of London and Paris during the French Revolution could very easily describe the emotions of political turmoil and social injustice of our days as well.

In Acts 17:1-15, we discover a Tale of Two OTHER Cities, Thessalonica and Berea, and examine how the people of these two communities responded to the Gospel Message about Jesus the Messiah. In one city, Paul was accused of starting a revolution, in the other, a revival. The question for us, today, is how will we respond to the Message of the Gospel and, more importantly, the Messiah of the Gospel?

ACTS: The JOY of the Gospel

As Americans, we have a thing about standing up for our rights. We’re so easily offended that if our rights are somehow violated, we don’t take it sitting down. From flags to flowers, we will boycott, protest, tweet, re-post something on Facebook, we’ll write our congressman, or whatever it takes to protect our rights.

As Roman citizens, Paul and Silas had a right to a trial before any punishment. Romans were exempt from public beatings. And yet the two missionaries were falsely accused, beaten, and thrown into prison, with their feet locked into the stocks, without any semblance of a trial. Their rights had been violated. If anyone had a right to be angry, they did. In Acts 16:10-40, we discover that real joy comes from being reconciled to God through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and sharing that Good News with others.

ACTS: Jesus’ Ministry thru the Church

When we look at the early church in the book of ACTS, it’s like roaring rapids at its source - they had few of the material and technological advances that we have, yet they made rapid strides in fulfilling the Great Commission. Centuries later, we look at the church of Jesus Christ and can’t immediately recognize its strength because the current of His Spirit runs deep. The book of ACTS records Jesus’ continued ministry on earth through the church - the body of Christ filled with His Spirit.

It’s helpful for us to review the source of the church’s power for effective ministry in the early days that we continue Jesus’ work on earth today. Acts 15-16 reveals three keys to effective ministry by the Church today. We see the power, focus, breadth, and depth of Christ’s love.

JOSHUA:
Be Strong and Courageous

Winter and Spring 2016

Most of the time, courageous faith doesn’t look very courageous. It’s not the absence of fear, it’s the presence of faith in God and the promises of His Word.
