The Light Shines On A Governor Part 2

October 24, 2022

Too often, we sacrifice eternity on the altar of the present. Though Paul was on trial, he confronted the Roman governor Felix’s sins. In this message, we hear a clear warning against the love of money or people’s opinions. We cannot wait until we die for our sins to come to light and for us to be humbled before God.

Many today ignore their conscience when confronted with Christianity. The Apostle Paul spoke directly to Felix, causing the Caesarean governor to become uncomfortable. In this message, we overhear Paul’s words about righteousness, self-control, and coming judgment. Are we willing to sacrifice being comfortable in the here and now?

What are we willing to do because of our passion for God? In Jerusalem, some new believers insisted that converts to the Christian faith keep observing Jewish laws. In this message, we meet Paul as he settles an argument that put the outreach of the Gospel at risk. We too are called to give our lives to carry out God’s desires.

Imagine all God can do through someone solely focused on God’s will. Paul’s determination to settle a church split in Jerusalem drove him into hardship, and eventually, to be on trial in Rome. In this message, we consider Paul’s dilemma and defense. Are we willing to do what is right even when harm is seemingly inevitable?

The continuation of the church always depends on its message. Take a tour of the sites of the seven churches of Revelation in what is now Turkey. All of them are gone. In this message, we review nine lessons from the church in Ephesus. What will it cost us to follow the message of the cross?

The Gospel is controversial, impacting even culture and business. The early church at Ephesus stood against worshiping the goddess Artemis, which affected the city’s silversmith business. In this message, we assess how the Ephesian church was founded and developed. What happens if idolatry destroys a church’s first love?

How do our vocations bring glory to God? In ancient Corinth, Paul and his friends exemplified the Gospel in the work of their hands. In this message, we learn further truths from Corinth about facing opposition to the Gospel. When doctors, lawyers, teachers, and businesspeople live out the Gospel with integrity, the world is turned upside down.

Where churches once flourished, many have been replaced with mosques or have been destroyed. Yet in the godless city of Corinth, Paul laid a healthy foundation for a lasting church. In this message, we hear three ways we can minimize the foundation of the Gospel. We cannot presume that any given congregation will continue.

How do we shine the light of Christ in a complex culture? Paul used the beliefs and culture of the Athenians to explain the real God, the real essence of man, and the very real need of salvation Christ offers. In this message, we explore three responses to the Gospel. In the power of the Spirit, we can shine like Paul did on Mars Hill.

Where can we find God amid our heartaches and tragedies? The Apostle Paul told the Athenians, in a city saturated with idols, that the one true God is not far from us. In this message, we identify three responses to the Gospel. The reactions are mixed—much as it is today in our idol-saturated culture.
October 11, 2022
The explosive power of the Gospel was felt in the world of the first century. The Holy Spirit began convicting of sin, causing a fearful jailer to ask, “What must I do to be saved?” In this message, we unlock two motivations to witness for Christ: faith and joy. The Gospel can change any heart—like a prison door flinging open.
