The Resurrected Judge of All

Acts 17:16-34 In 1898, Swiss artist Eugene Burnand’s painted “The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Sepulchre on the Morning of the Resurrection.” Burnand painted a look on both Peter’s and John’s faces that Sunday morning that so strongly depicts the struggle to believe that the resurrection of Jesus was indeed true. But within hours […]

The Sovereign Spirit

Acts 16:6-15 How do you respond to “closed doors”? Paul, Silas, and Timothy experienced some doors explicitly said to be closed by none other than the Holy Spirit Himself. Sometimes God’s plans for us are different from what we would have expected. How should we respond when that happens? Join Pastor Larry McCall in Acts 16:6-15. […]

When Division = Multiplication

Acts 15:36-16:5 What are we to make of the surprising – and, yes, somewhat disappointing story in Acts 15:36-16:5 of Paul and Barnabas dividing when they couldn’t agree on who should make up their missions team?

Extraordinary Results

Acts 11:19-30 How did you become part of Christ’s kingdom? Who did God use to tell you the gospel? Do you know who told the person who told you? Some people might be able to answer that, but most probably can’t. Want to keep going? Who told the person who told the person who told […]

Jesus Breaks In

Acts 9:32-43 Is it okay for a Christian to be a pessimist, to “expect misfortune or the worst outcome in any circumstance”? (Webster’s unabridged dictionary). Where does pessimism come from, anyway? We could easily assume that a person becomes a pessimist because bad things have repeatedly happened to him or her. But there are plenty […]
