If we truly want to know God, grow in community, and make a difference, the book of Acts is arguably one of the most important roadmaps we have.
When the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (Acts 2:4), they were empowered to be witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). They were empowered to be generous, sharing everything they had so that there was no one among them in need (Acts 4:32-27). They were empowered to stand firm for their faith and maintain compassion for those who persecuted them, even in the face of death (Acts 7).
And as modern believers, we are still empowered by the Holy Spirit to participate in the mission God has called us to.
This 9-week series “EMPOWERED” journeys through the book of Acts and discovers the practical ways that the Holy Spirit equips and empowers us to be agents of reconciliation in the world.
