ACTS: The Reason for God

Like the intellectuals of Athens (Acts 17:16-34), we’ve got a checklist of expectations that God must meet. In other words, Americans worship our own happiness. In the meantime, we’ve reduced God from the Sovereign Creator and Lord of the universe to a servant who’s supposed to fulfill our own personal agenda.  So when our friends get cancer, our kids don’t turn out right, we lose our jobs, and we don’t have marital bliss, we have words with God. “What’s the deal, Lord?!? I go to church regularly, I serve, I pray, I give… where are You?” We’ve melted God down into a modern-day golden calf. We’ve reduced God into a dispenser of personal peace, prosperity, and happiness.

The Bible explains to us that the philosophies of this world lead to lives of emptiness and deceit, but the reality of God leads to a fulfilling relationship with Him. God is present. He is active. He is in control. But He also gives us freedom to choose life with Him or without Him. The choice is up to you, but the consequences are not.

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.
