Acts 6-7

This sermon was preached at Crosswater Community Church in Sultan, WA on 2/25/24 

Jesus told His disciples “it is to your advantage that I go away…” because doing so allowed for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are not to merely exist as passive believers waiting for the return of Jesus. Instead, as Christ-followers we are “Empowered” by the Spirit, enabling us to live a life characterized by boldness, unity, and unwavering faith in order to bring the transformative love and life of Jesus Christ to the world around us.

GOD is so awesome that HE is not limited by what limits us and yet HE lovingly includes us in building HIS kingdom. This includes the really bad, stinky things that happen. We get to and need to trust HIM, obey HIM and believe that HE can do "far more abundantly than all we ask or  think " HE is our power!
