Dealing with Division

Date 06th March 2011  by Clinton Berends  Bible passage Acts 6:1-7

Dealing with Division: Every family knows the reality of difficulties and friction. It seems to be whenever you get people living together in close proximity there are bound to be some issues. The same is true in the church, even in the early church. This Sunday we come to Acts 6:1-7, which has the potential,

Acts: On Fire, Under Fire

Date 06th March 2011  by David Groenenboom  Bible passage Acts 5:12-42

On Fire, Under Fire. One of the challenges about reading Acts is coming face to face with the sheer amount of opposition the people faced. This passage is another point of tension – to put it mildly – between the NT church and the leaders of the Jewish faith. Amazing things happen, and God is

Someone commented to me in the last week “I want to belong to the church of Acts 2.” And it seems very attractive, like they had no problems, and everyone was included, and exciting things we always happening. What’s not to love? And then we hit Acts 5, and all of a sudden it get

So much happens in the week between Jesus’ triumphal entry and his death. This time we meet the Sadducees who come with a scenario meant to trap Jesus, this time religiously.
