Seize Every Opportunity

So often today we are unwilling to talk to anybody about Jesus, the Bible, or church. But when we read the closing chapters of Acts we see Paul seizing every single opportunity, no matter what the cost to himself, to tell anybody and everybody about the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Disruptive Diversity

In Acts, the church becomes a force for disruptive change. They begin to practice radical inclusion of people who had long been prevented from getting close to God in the Temple. Not only could Gentiles, Eunuchs, Samaritans, women, and all kinds of people become Christians, but God's presence dwelt in them when they received the Holy Spirit. But this kind of disruptive diverse community brought challenges. But that didn't keep the early church from continually striving to be an accommodating (not assimilating) community of Christ followers. Are we ready to become that kind of disruptive community today?

Spirit-Filled Vessels

Why don't we expect the Holy Spirit to show up and make a difference in our lives? In Luke and Acts Jesus promises us that when he leaves he will send what the Father has promised, and with that promise comes power that comes from the Holy Spirit. Too often we think we are too imperfect, too unqualified, or that we are waiting for the "right time" to let the Holy Spirit come in and move us to action, in many ways just like the Apostles were. But if we get over that, like the Apostles did, we can become courageous, speak to anybody and everybody about God, sharing with one another, and incapable of being silenced or killed. This is what it means to be Spirit-filled vessels. Are you ready?

Fourth Day

Jesus demonstrated through his trials with the Jewish leaders, Pilate, and Herod that he has incredible strength, courage, and confidence in his purpose as the Son of God. However, his followers struggled to understand or believe Jesus was resurrected, even after seeing him. They finally believe and then Luke's Gospel ends! But what's next? What happens after a follower of Jesus becomes convinced of the resurrection? Luke's response..."you tell me."
