The Book of ACTS, P1 | Oct 6-Nov 24
Welcome to the beginning of brand-new way of life…
The sacrificial death and mighty physical resurrection of Jesus brought in a new beginning for the whole world. Everything was flipped upside down when Jesus took his rightful place as King of the World.
The powerful reality of the strange claims of his followers could be verified by the fact that average men and women were somehow empowered to speak, serve and love in supernatural ways. It was like God Himself had entered normal people and gave them the ability to know His heart and move with His energy.
This group of God-infused people began to gather and celebrate the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. They prayed, sang, ate, loved, served, studied, and cared for another with a deep sense of belonging that could only be the inception of something new from heaven itself.
The story you are about to hear is the continuation of the greatest story that has ever been told. It is Part Two of the culmination of history in the person of Jesus, King of the Jews and Sovereign of the Universe.
The book we know of as The Acts of the Apostles is a historical account of the powerful work of Jesus by the Spirit through his church. It is the astounding overflow of the glory of Jesus rippling with transforming effectiveness though His people into all the world!
For those with eyes to see, ears to hear, and hearts eager for change, the book of Acts will not only challenge our pessimistic perspective of the church, it will also summon each of us to participation in a brand new way of life!
