Gospel of Relentless God



Acts 13 records for us a transition in the story. The focus is shifting from Peter and those apostles to Paul as an apostle of Christ to the Gentiles. And thus Luke gives us the first sample of Paul’s sermon, given in the synagogue of Antioch in Pisidia.
Paul tells the story of the gospel. For the gospel is not simply a plan or a set of beliefs. The gospel is the person of Jesus the Messiah fulfilling the story of a relentless God to rescue His people.

Hallmarks of True Church



We had a special guest from the Association of Baptist Students, our college ministry at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Stuart Estes is the new Ministry Team Leader at The Hedge at ABS. You will hear an introduction about him as well as news from this important missionary endeavour. Then he preached the Word of God to us from the book of Acts on the hallmarks or distinctions of a true church.  Plus a nice surprise on the end of the audio.

Prayer to Proclaim the Gospel



Sometimes we giggle at the antics of the disciples while reading in the gospels while admiring their boldness in the stories recorded in Acts.  The change within them was both supernatural and intentional.   They endured the threats from hostile authorities by praying to the Almighty God to give them boldness to continue to proclaim and advance the gospel message of Christ Jesus.  We ponder their courageous prayer as recorded in Acts 4.

Christ seated at the Right Hand



Christ rose from the dead, conquering the grave!  He proved His victory to His disciples with undeniable proofs over the course of forty days.   Then He bodily ascended into heaven while the disciples watched in awe.  The Ascension to the right hand of the Father is a vital part of His victory.   Let’s understand more why this is important.
