Testify of Jesus



The Jewish holiday of Pentecost celebrated the harvest that was started at Passover and Feast of Firstfruits. And the crowd at this festival heard the sound of a tornado and flames of fire followed by the praises of God in languages beyond Judea and Galilee. The followers of Jesus used the opportunity to obey His command to be witnesses to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Listen in as Peter gives the keynote message – Repent and be baptized.

One Generation to the Next



We get a peek behind the curtain of the tent into the family of Moses. His father-in-law is the priest of the tribe of Midian who worships the LORD. But the stories from his son-in-law Moses cause the old priest to worship and exclaim that his faith in the one true God is greater now than ever before. And we learn something about honoring our parents and evangelizing with our story of God.

The LORD’s Passover Plan



 

The LORD God gives the Plan to Moses. It calls for a Perfect Lamb with a specific Purpose. Protection is needed from the death that is certain. By faith, we follow the LORD’s Plan of Protection.

Continue in Prayer



Paul encourages the believers in this little church of a town he never visited to pray like their lives depend on it. Like the city guard, be vigilant in praying with copious amounts of thanksgiving. Then Paul gives them two areas to be praying – pray for the missionary team and pray for themselves to be missionaries where they live to those outside the kingdom of Christ.

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.

The Miraculous Catch



Jesus draws people unto Himself with His power and His words. And some will want even more and see His working. Through repentance and faith, these people will hear the call to greater intimacy with Christ. And intimacy that empowers them to be a part of drawing others to Christ.

Rahab and Joshua



Rahab teaches us as much about Jesus as Joshua does.  She enters the story with a sordid reputation that tarnishes nearly everyone who associates with her. Yet she is crucial to knowing God and the work that the LORD was doing with the Israelites and Canaanites. So much so that the New Testament reveals more about her and through her than the Hebrew Scriptures do.  We are all more like Rahab than we may realize.
Sinners saved by grace.

Favor with God comes first



“Never has a man spoken like this Man!” Jesus had a demeanor that even His opponents found irrefutable at times.  It has been remarked that the Lamb of God had to be silent at His trial or they would not have been able to carry out their miscarriage of justice.  John tells of one of those occasions when the opponents of Jesus were confounded by the Son of Man.  Yet Jesus showed unswerving loyalty to His first calling, to perfectly obey the will of His Father.

More than words to share the gospel



Paul didn’t have much time with this little church plant, but he quickly fell in love with these people.   As he recounted how the gospel had been shared with them, he gave God the praise for how the gospel was now spreading from them to their neighbors.  And we see how we can share such good news with our neighbors as well.
