Among the many people we encounter in Acts, is the Apostle Paul. As we give attention to chapter seventeen today, we’ll take a look at Paul’s time in the city of Athens

Most missionaries would tell you that it doesn’t take an extraordinary person to be a missionary - it takes a calling of God upon your life. This would be true of the Apostle Paul and we’ll look to Acts sixteen today as we continue to glean insights from his second missionary journey. Glad to have you on board today for The Dwelling Place.

Today we will continue our study through the book of Acts and chapter four . This was a time of great growth in the early Christian church, and two of the leaders of that early church, Peter and John, had been arrested for preaching the Gospel.

During his missionary journeys, Paul encountered demon-possessed people, was often beaten for his boldness in faith, and was even left for dead a couple times. But none of those things deterred him from his mission of spreading the Good News of Christ.

There is but one motive that will sustain you in trial and testing; namely, the love of Christ. This attitude was shared by the apostle Paul, and we’ll see today how the love of Christ fueled Paul during His missionary trips.

God is always at work in the midst of our circumstances - even when it doesn’t seem like He is. When Paul and Barnabas had a disagreement in Acts fifteen, they departed from each other and went their separate ways. At first glance, this seems like a very unfortunate incident - until you realize that God suddenly had two missionary teams spreading the Gospel instead of just one.

We’re making our way through the Book of Acts right now and today we’ll focus our attention on chapters fifteen and sixteen. We’ll see that the Lord used Paul to lead people to salvation, but Paul also recognized the importance of following Jesus’ model of discipleship.

 In Acts chapter four, we find Peter and John before the religious authorities, accused of saying things that were quite contrary to the accepted teaching of the time. But Peter and John were defiant, they were on fire for the Lord, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit.

About Al Pittman

Al was born in Panama City, Florida in 1955. His father was a career soldier, so the family traveled extensively. In 1973, when Al was seventeen years old, the family returned from a tour in Germany and settled in Colorado Springs. Soon after, Al realized God’s call on  his life and began serving in the music ministry as a bass guitarist with a Christian band  called, “The Rays of Light.” It was during this time that Al met Norma, and they were married on July 19, 1975. 

Al attended Nazarene Bible College in Colorado Springs, graduating in 1977 with a degree in Biblical Studies. In 1991 Al and his family moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, and two years later he joined the staff of Calvary Chapel Albuquerque as an assistant pastor and co-worship leader. In the spring of 1997 the Lord called Al and his family back to Colorado Springs to pastor Calvary Worship Center. In 2006, Al earned his Master’s degree and in 2012 he earned his Doctorate degree in Ministry from Trinity Southwest University in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Al and Norma are the proud parents of three children, Renee, Nathan and Reggie, as well as proud grandparents.
