God is still speaking, but are we listening? We want to be a church that is alert to the Spirit’s leading through the gift of prophecy.
As followers of Jesus, we may be in the minority but we can make a real difference to society if we maintain our distinctiveness in the whole of our lives.
If we’re going to be a growing community of whole-life disciples, we have serve God where He’s placed us; whether it’s where we expected to be or not.
We want to be a growing community, not just a growing church. But what does this look like, and what can we learn from the early church?
As we reach the conclusion to Luke’s book of Acts, we are reminded of Paul’s dogged commitment to the people God called him to minister to.
Paul knew that his journey by sea to Rome might mean disaster, having been shipwrecked before. Sometimes we need help to get us through the storms of life.
Paul was imprisoned but not intimidated, because he knew the risen Jesus and the promise that God would be with him on days like these.
Paul’s third missionary journey was chaotic. He faced confrontation head-on but he also knew when to walk away. We often need wisdom to know the difference.
The gospel will be good news for some, but bad news for those who stand in opposition to its principles.
The Spirit who birthed the church at Pentecost continues to breathe life in to us, so that we can be more than we could ever be on our own.
