Rejoicing in Our Sufferings — Bob Whitaker (23 Nov 2014)

Acts 16:11, 16-34. In every circumstance, we have the same choice: how to respond. Will we believe that God is good, that his sovereign grace is present with us even in the difficulties of life? Are we willing to believe this in spite of our circumstance, or will our circumstances determine what we believe? Don’t answer this question too quickly–let it trouble you for a few days as you consider your response.

A Community Guided by the Spirit — Bob Whitaker (16 Nov 2014)

Acts 15:1-21. A defining characteristic of the church in the book of Acts was that they were a community of Christ-followers who were led by the Spirit. How often do we think of ourselves that way? Shouldn’t this be true of us today as much as it was for the church in the first century?

What Is Your Role in the Kingdom? — Bob Whitaker (26 Oct 2014)

Acts 6:1-7. The dramatic growth of the church early in Acts led to the appointing of assistants who would take care of physical needs and help others “find their place” in the body of Christ. Are you on that path of spiritual formation, contributing to life in the body of Christ? What is your role?

Good News for the Outsiders — Bob Whitaker (12 Oct 2014)

The universal truth concerning Jesus Christ does not change, but perhaps the message is different when it is delivered in a variety of contexts. For instance, the evangelistic message of Peter at Pentecost (Acts 2) was different than the message of Paul at Mars Hill (Acts 17). Please think with us about how the Gospel is both universally true and culturally diverse.

Good News for the Insider — Bob Whitaker (5 Oct 2014)

Acts 2:14-24, 36-41. The good news about Jesus Christ is for everyone but the proclamation of the good news is always delivered in a particular context. Does this affect the message or just the delivery of the message? Surely the universal truth concerning Jesus Christ does not change but perhaps the message is different when it is delivered in

A Partnership with Jesus — Bob Whitaker (21 Sept 2014)

Acts 4:13-31. Jesus’ disciples embraced a partnership with Jesus while he was with them, and after his death this partnership not only survived but grew at Pentecost into a new awareness of their mission. Their focus on the Gospel was singular, enthusiastic, and fearless because they realized that the mission of God on earth was absolutely indestructible. That gave them incredible courage and it should do the same for us.
