ACTS: Sent as Witnesses - Choose Your Own Adventure

ACTS: Sent as Witnesses

Paul is heading back to Jerusalem and knows that it will not go well for him. As he again faces persecution, and this time from his own people, Paul shows us what it is like to lean into the will of God and seek after something more than the right choice. What does it mean to follow the will of God?

From Series: "ACTS: Sent as Witnesses"

Jesus sent the church into the world to be his witnesses and the Spirit empowered and directed them across cultural, religious and geographical boundaries. In the latter half of Acts, we follow the Apostle Paul on his journeys across the Mediterranean world, giving witness to Jesus in synagogues, markets, and halls of power. He and his companions experience resistance from economic, political and religious opponents, as well as hardships like prison and shipwreck. He makes disciples, recruits companions and plants churches in a wide variety of cultural settings. Like Paul, we are all called to be witnesses of Jesus where God has sent us. Living out of the same story and filled with the same Spirit, we are to proclaim the good news with joy and power. We will experience resistance and hardship along the way, but we can trust God with our lives and with the results of our witness.
