A life well-lived is one whose purpose is the same as God's purpose. As we wrap up our series of conversations on the book of Acts, we find Paul under house-arrest. Faithfully he fulfilled God's purpose of making more disciples. We learn this is how we, too, can choose to finish our life well by choosing to do so today.
Festus accused Paul of being insane for his belief in God, and Paul responded that belief in Him is reasonable. Looking at science and morality to discover the evidence for God.
Is there a better way to live than being the type that easily reacts, is easy to go off the handle, than to respond before learning the whole story? Luke, in Acts contrasts two groups of people in Acts 17. One group was more noble than the other, and offers for us today a lesson in how to develop and have noble character.
God doesn't always lead us to places we would expect, or situations we might prefer. Paul and Silas discovered this as they followed God's leading in their life and wound up in jail. Yet, through their ordeal, they worshipped God from where they were, and God moved and people were saved.
All of us have someone in our past that we have admired, at least in some capacity. They have influenced us, affected us, and we have modeled at least some aspect of our life after them. A young man named Timothy should be one of those people. His life is one worth emulating.
Conflict is part of our life; we are hard pressed to avoid it. But how can we handle it in a biblical manner? What is God's design for properly resolving it? Paul and Barnabas experienced conflict, and it ended poorly. Join us as we learn from their failure to better handle conflict in our lives.
God is a communicating God who loves to communicate with His creation. As Christ-followers, we must position ourselves to best hear from him.
