Introduction to Grace
Sun, Apr 23, 2017
Simeon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: May grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:1-2 (ESV) Sometimes it feels like there are those good, together, super Christians. Then there are the rest of us. We would like to do and be better but we aren’t. We seem to wrestle with the same things over and over again. Our spiritual growth seems to go through peaks and lulls. When it comes to the spiritual disciplines, well, let’s just say we had resolutions in January but now its April. Is there any hope for us? In Peter's second letter, the apostle is writing to people like you and me. They are struggling to live out their faith in a complicated and diverse world. And to add to this complexity, there are a few ‘teachers’ telling them that they have some secret special sauce to being a Christian. Peter writes this letter near the end of his life to reassure them and point them toward the one unchanging source of their righteousness - Christ.

Destination Rome

And Agrippa said to Paul, “In a short time would you persuade me to be a Christian?” And Paul said, “Whether short or long, I would to God that not only you but also all who hear me this day might become such as I am—except for these chains.” -- Acts 26:28-29 (ESV) Most of the time we are silent and imprisoned in a maze of self-consciousness. But when we do muster up the courage to speak about our faith, often we are unsure about what to say. We are afraid of an argument or idea that we have never heard of. We think we need every answer. And we fear that they may really look at us. One peek behind the curtain of our life will reveal the mess. Is that you? The book of Acts has displayed for us the story of the early church and it's mission. While we live in a different time, with different challenges, and different questions, the gospel remains the same. This week we will unfold the story of Paul's time before Agrippa the King. His family had been a brutal enemy of Christ and his followers. What would Paul say? I encourage you to take a few minutes to read through Acts 25-26 and get yourself familiar with the account before Sunday.

Paul On Trial: Felix
Sun, Mar 26, 2017
For we have found this man a plague, one who stirs up riots among all the Jews throughout the world and is a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes. He even tried to profane the temple, but we seized him. By examining him yourself you will be able to find out from him about everything of which we accuse him.” -- Acts 24:5-8 (ESV) Revolutionary! Cult Leader! Blasphemer! These were charges leveled at Paul by the Jewish establishment lawyers. These weren’t new allegations. The crowd at Thessalonica had called Paul and his companions, ‘men who had turned the world upside down’ (Acts 17:6). Riots and revolution did seem to follow them everywhere. How would Paul respond? Would he come out with guns blazing and scripture flying? Would he respond like Christ at his trial by being silent? How would you respond? What if your life hung in the balance? This week we will look at Acts 24 and Paul’s trial before Felix. This passage gives a view into how Paul saw himself and his relationship to the secular government, to the religious establishment, and to God. I encourage you to take a few minutes before Sunday morning and read it through.
