In this week's sermon:
There are lots of signs of the kingdom: the blind see, the lame walk, and we long to see that in our day. But perhaps the greatest sign of all is that people are cut to the heart and want to follow Jesus. We see this with 3000 at Pentecost, with the Eunuch, and with Paul, and we long to see that today. We need to be people who are thirsty for God to do his work among us and through us.
We’re in a sermon series called, “Scattered - Being the Church everywhere we go”, exploring the early days of the Church in the book of Acts. Those days were highly disruptive and uncertain times for Jesus' disciples, with persecutions and other hardships, caught in the crossfire of political and nationalistic strife - yet we see the Church experiencing explosive growth. As we find ourselves now in similarly uncertain times: our lives disrupted and scattered by the Covid-19 pandemic, with the threat of many other issues and political turmoils across our nation and world - it seems appropriate to be looking back to see what we can learn from the experiences of our ancient relatives in the faith and how God moved by His Spirit through His people to expand and strengthen His eternal kingdom throughout the temporary kingdoms of this world.
