In Acts 16, Paul and Silas find joy in the Christian life as they minister to others through happy times and times of suffering.
This week, Pastor Joe preaches on Acts 15:1-35. The apostles debate the Pharisees in the fight for the gospel of grace.
As Acts 12 begins, the antichrists appear to be winning. Herod kills James and arrests Peter. Then, an angel of the Lord rescues Peter from his chains and frees him from his prison cell. Herod delivers an oration in his royal robes, but God has the final word.
Acts 9:20-43: To everyone’s amazement, Saul begins proclaiming Jesus as the Son of God in the synagogues. Miracles continue, and believers multiply.
The story continues. In Acts 9, we read about the astonishing conversion of Saul, who, in the midst of his ardent dedication to persecuting Jesus and his disciples, was saved by the grace of God.
Acts 8:1-25: Saul ravages the church, Philip proclaims Christ in Samaria, and Simon the Magician offers the apostles money to receive the Holy Spirit.
