It is not enough to be grabbed by grace (to experience the unmerited favor, and kindness of God). We must obey and allow grace to lead us into salvation (Acts 2:38). We then continue in obedience to the Word of God. We should turn from godless living, and sinful pleasures, to right living. It is not acceptable to have one foot in the world, and one foot in the church. [ read more... ]
If you could be any character in Acts, who would it be? Would it be Peter the Pentecost preacher? Would it be Dr. Luke the prolific writer? What about Paul the magnificent missionary? How about Apollos, the mighty man of Scriptures? Would you settle for Timothy, the learner? I’ve dreamed of being like all of those. However, there is a champion that stands out; Barnabas, the encourager. That was his nickname; one that has stuck throughout the ages. If fellow believers, coworkers, or family members were to give you a nickname, what would it be? [ read more... ]
We need to take account of the things that happen in the Bible, there were certain times that God moved greatly and there were times when it seemed that God was nowhere to be found. That is when we should take a look at our lives to examine what is wrong and then make it right before the Lord. [ read more... ]
His character is one of the most charming in the New Testament because it shows his humanness. He was eager, energetic, impulsive, confident, bold, daring, but also weak, and cowardly. He was tenderhearted, self-sacrificing, and loving. He quickly moves from one extreme to another. He was inconsistent, unstable, and outspoken. When empowered by the Spirit he became powerful, stable, humble, bold, and courageous. [ read more... ]
Delegated authority is such a critical matter. We cannot reject delegated authorities and then just obey God directly. God views them that reject delegated authority as rejecting the authority of God Himself. If we will honor the authority of God in others, He will honor it in us. [ read more... ]

Angels are mentioned nearly three hundred times in thirty-four books of the Bible. In the Book of Acts alone angels are referred to twenty-one times. In Revelation angels are mentioned in seventy-four references. [ read more... ]
We play an important and active role in the winning of souls but we will not be held responsible for the choices made by those whom we witness to. God will bless our efforts if we will make the effort to be used by Him. We must be ready at all times to be a witness for Jesus Christ. [ read more... ]
At the School of Missions in 1994 I listened intently as Rev. G. A. Tracy, the newly appointed Coordinator of Overseas Ministries (then Director of Education/AIM) expressed his burden for training. His suggestion that full scale theological education is taking so much time (usually three years), and is not getting the job of world evangelism done, caught me in a mixture of emotional responses. One part of me wanted to emphatically reject what he was saying, having been involved in full-time Bible College work for eleven years. [ read more... ]
Submission is absolute, but obedience is relative. That almost sounds like false doctrine doesn't it? What most don't understand is that submission is a matter of attitude, whereas obedience is a matter of conduct! [ read more... ]
The (Sanhedrin) leaders had given the people of God strict orders not to preach or teach in the name of Jesus. It was their law. The men of God found it impossible to obey this law and continued to preach and teach in the name of Jesus. [ read more... ]
People today feel that they are quite able to find the Will of God on their own and do not need the help of men. They even say, “I’m not going to listen to men but only to the voice of God.” First of all, it will be a very lonely life if you determine not to listen to men. Secondly, this attitude is very dangerous. [ read more... ]
Every member of the church needs to be mobilized for evangelism through training in soul winning and the different areas in which they can minister to the local church. This is where Portable Bible Schools, and other efforts come into the picture. Sunday School classes need to be set up for the purpose of training people at various age levels. Bible Studies need to be prepared and taught to teach our members in the fundamental truths of the Word of God, in doctrine, principles, and Christian living. [ read more... ]
Topic: Small Group Ministry
Have you ever considered where the Holy Ghost was poured out on the Day of Pentecost? It was an “upper room.” “And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room...” (Acts 1:13) This was a room traditionally set aside by rich people to entertain their visitors. The Holy Ghost was not poured out in the temple or chapel but in someone’s home. With three thousand added to the church on the first day, where do you think they continued to worship?
