Sermon Series: The Story: Reforming & Restoring
Text: Acts 1:1-12:24
Preacher: Brent McCrory
Special Speaker: Sarah Harder
If the Resurrection of Jesus forever changed reality as we know it…then the ascension of Jesus should forever change how His followers live their lives. In other words, Jesus’ ascension means there is a King, and He is reigning. To more fully grasp the implications of this, we must do our best to understand what history tells us.
It has been said that those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it. My hope is that those who do know history will be compelled to repeat it. In other words, the more The Church knows history, the more we will function as The Church did back then. An implication of this we focused on in this sermon is embracing conflict. We need not fear nor run from it. While the devil may incite conflict in order to divide and destroy, it truly is God’s missing ingredient for growth.
Toward the end of the sermon we were privileged to hear from our own Sarah Harder. She will be going to Mozambique this summer and attending the Harvest School of Missions. This was Sarah’s last service with us until sometime in August when she returns for a stint before going overseas for a longer placement. I know you will be blessed by hearing from her.
