God requires 100% devotion

God requires 100% devotion

The Christian is someone who has been ransomed from the kingdom of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the beloved Son of God.

And they were filled with the Holy Spirit

And they were filled with the Holy Spirit

The greatest need of the born again Christian is to be filled with the Holy Spirit. When we are under the control of the Holy Spirit, we will always glorify Jesus Christ.

Who are you listening to ?

Who are you listening to ?

“…the scriptures had to be fulfilled…”

"...the scriptures had to be fulfilled..."

Acts 1:15-26 Luke’s attention to detail helps us to know that the new covenant community began with about 120 disciples of Jesus devoting themselves to prayer for 10 days. This passage commences with Peter quoting the scriptures, “….the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit spoke beforehand by the mouth of David…” Acts […]

Speaking about the Kingdom

Speaking about the Kingdom

Acts 1:1-14 Luke begins his second volume by telling his readers that what he recorded in his gospel was what “Jesus began to do and teach”. It is as if he is introducing a second installment of what Jesus goes on to do. We begin with Jesus teaching his disciples for 40 days about the […]
