Wednesday Evening Study
The Book of Acts
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Acts 1:8
The Book of Acts grants us a unique and fascinating glimpse into the world of the early church… In it, we peer through the corridors of two millennia and see the still vivid foundations of our own faith. Beginning in Jerusalem, the Book of Acts shows the road we believers have traveled to arrive at our present state. Dr. J. Vernon McGee once wrote, “The New Testament without the Book of Acts leaves a great yawning gap, if it were gone there would be nothing to replace it.” The Book of Acts is the unique story of regular people just like us. They share our same hopes and similar fears, our worst prejudice and best qualities. In fact, Acts is, essentially our story. It is your legacy and mine. It is the record of our brothers and sisters who came before us, blazing a revolutionary, messianic trail from Jerusalem to “the ends of the earth.”
I hope you’ll plan to attend this Wednesday evening study series; come, we’ll be glad you did! (Fellowship Meal 5:15, Study series 6:30)
Through the love of Christ,
With all the politics surrounding the appointment of a new Supreme Court Justice today, what better time could there be than now to study the Old Testament Book of Judges?
The time of Israel’s two great leaders, Moses and Joshua is past, without a leader appointed Israel is in danger of losing the very land God led them to conquer… The Promised Land…The Land of Canaan.
The book of Judges spans more than 325 years of Israel’s history under 12 different judges with names like: Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Tola, and Deborah, just to name a few.
What was it about these 11 men and 1 woman that led God to choose them to deliver His people from their oppressors? Who were they? What experience did they have at leading a nation, whether it meant judging issues between parties in their own nation or leading an army against powerful pagan nations for the right to occupy the Land of Canaan? What did God see in them that they couldn’t see in themselves?
Our Sunday Evening Study series led by Mrs. Nancy McLemore will be at 5:00 P.M. in the Fellowship Hall. We hope you’ll come, and let’s consider not only the well-known, but equally as important, the lesser known heroes of the Book of Judges. Our Evening Worship service will follow this study.
