The Book of Acts: Athenian Idol

At Refuge Church last Saturday night, Pastor Brian talked about The Apostle Paul’s Missionary Journey through Athens. He’s disturbed by the number of man made idols he sees. We tend to think of idols as little statues, but anything can become an idol in our lives, from our Kids to our cellphones. An Idol is anything that comes before God. What is an idol in your life?

Acts 17:16-34

Acts: Broken People Sharing Jesus

This week we’re back in the book of Acts, chapter 13. Why are there so many Christian denominations? Why does God’s Word seem to be unclear? What is my calling in life?  It was an exhilarating and frightening discussion.

Acts: The Unstoppable Gospel

This Saturday night we discussed Peter’s unlikely, and against all odds escape from prison in Acts 12.  A discussion that made me sweat … and even cross a line of honesty and transparency where I didn’t quite expect to go.

Acts: It’s All About Jesus

This week we had a night of prayer and worship, as we reflected on the themes of Acts (and the early church).  On this Saturday night at Refuge we found Jesus, where he’s always been found … in worship, prayer, baptism, relationships and mission.  The night was all about Jesus.

Acts: For All People

If you are in Christ, you are in Christ. There are no second-class, back of the bus, citizens of Heaven.  We all have equal standing before God, and should treat each other as equals on earth, as it is in Heaven.

This week, we look at the conversion of the first Gentiles into the fold of God, and the continued conversion of Peter’s thinking, as his long held prejudices biases are transformed.

Acts: Ananias and Brother Saul

This week we continue in the conversion story of Saul as another character enters the story; a guy by the name of Ananias.  Saul has been out to destroy the Christians, yet the first word here hears after his encounter with Jesus is … BROTHER.

Enemy number one of the Church when he meets the Christians in Damascus, he isn’t treated like a stranger (which would have been kind enough).   He’s not even just treated like a friend.  For the first time in Saul’s life he’s now a part of a community who understands how deeply they are forgiving.  So much so, that they can turn to someone like Saul, and welcome him with open arms into the family of God.

Acts: The Conversion of Saul

This week, we look at the conversion of Saul, as we see the Gospel break through the most difficult barrier of all; the barrier of the human heart.  The barrier of our own self-righteousness and own moral goodness.
