Despite early Jewish opposition and later Roman persecution and martyrdom, their passion, conviction, and impact could not be stopped.
Phil Ware continues his series called 'I Doubt It' and focuses today on Jesus' call and promise that his eleven apostles and those that followed them would turn the world upside down with their message of good news and hope and grace.
If the apostles needed to wait on the Spirit, shouldn't we?
Max Lucado reminds us that the Holy Spirit is essential to all we do and are as followers of Jesus, so let's wait on the Spirit to lead us and empower us before launching out too hastily into the unknown.
Phil Ware reminds us that people make up their own definitions of what grace means all the time, but Jesus defines grace, exemplifies it, and pours it out upon us and he should be our example and definition of grace.
Where does the Loch Ness monster of your soul dwell?
Max Lucado reminds us of what we don't want others to know about us and we don't want to admit ourselves -- we have strongholds that require drastic action to tear down and we have to invite God into every area of our lives for that to happen.
Does it ever feel like that we've reduced Christianity down to something less than Jesus wants us to experience?
Phil Ware challenges our settled notions about church in the box and wants us to realize that Jesus has so much more in store for us if we will make the moves necessary to experience Jesus and his story for ourselves.
