The First Christmas Carol

This week we are studying the special Christmas lesson that is included in your study guides.

As we think about Christmas Carols, I thought you might find the following article interesting.




The Spirit of Truth and Generosity

God is serious about protecting his church.

God is serious about providing for his church.

God is serious about his church.

We see these three truths come to life this week in our study of Acts 4 and 5. Ananias and Sapphira come on the scene, and are then removed pretty quickly. Let’s make sure we stick to the text and learn what God desires of us regarding truth and generosity.

The Spirit Comes

We must be on mission.

We cannot be on mission without God’s power.

We are granted God’s power through his Spirit.

There you have it. That is the gist of the lesson for this week. We are looking at Acts 2 and examining how God has equipped us to be on mission with him. Remember that the Spirit who empowers you to go and make disciples is the same Spirit who equips you to live the Christian life each and every day.

The Risen King’s Commission

Don’t you love it when a command is so simple that there is no way you could possibly misinterpret it or misunderstand it?

Don’t you hate it when that same command is so often misapplied and just missed in your life?

What is our deal?

The Great Commission is pretty straight forward, yet we fail to do it too often. I pray this week that we all will be motivated to simply do what Jesus tells us to do.
