Have You Ever Gone Against The Will Of God?

“Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”  Acts 9:4b Have we ever found ourselves going against the will of God?  This is a minor form of persecution against God because we are discounting His guidance.  We may not think of this in these terms but we are thus in rebellion and being disobedient.  When we…

Looking For Identity In Life

What can hinder me from being Baptized?  Acts 8:36 All of us are looking for our identity in life.  When we find ourselves in Christ,  we rejoice for we are accepted into the Kindom of God.  Our identity is now sons and daughters of the Father.  Leading others to Christ gives them a new identity…

What Do You Have To Say For Yourself?

Then the Chief Priest said, “What do you have to say for yourself?”  Acts 7:1 When asked what we have to say for ourselves we often return a somewhat lame answer.  Stephen did not!  Stephen spoke of God’s workings throughout Jewish history and how God was there to aid and help His people, and how…
