We are nearing the end of our journey through the entire book of Acts and arrive this week at the last recorded speech by the Apostle Paul. Paul is not, technically, on trial but offers an astounding defense of the Christian faith. When we started the book of Acts, I suggested that it would stretch and challenge your Christian faith, and this week is no different. Paul is very clear about what the Christian faith is and what it is not. At it’s core, the Christian faith is, according to Paul, is about “the promise.” Exactly what that means may surprise you. We’ll look at four ways in which God provides through the promise and consider what they mean for you and me. If you have a friend who is wondering what the Christian faith is all about or who is trying to figure out how the God we read about in the Old Testament is consistent with the God we read about in Acts and the New Testament, please invite that friend to worship with you this Sunday.
God’s promises are not like yours and mine. God delivers on all His promises and that’s a very good thing for us.
