Jon Riley preaches on Paul's time in Athens, when he reasoned with the thinkers of the age. Instead of approaching them with antagonism, Paul shared the Gospel using language relevant to them, and also spent time listening to what they had to say. This is something we as Christians today can learn from in how to relate to people when sharing the truth of Jesus.
Pastor Michael Riley preaches this week on how being a follower of Christ can often get messy, because were are called into a world of broken people and we ourselves are in the process of being redeemed. Despite this, God still uses us and our messy lives to share His love and Gospel.
We return to our series on the book of Acts, focusing this sermon on Paul and his response to the cultural and physical persecution he faced when on his first missionary journey. Amidst harassment, threats and even stoning, he was able to maintain a clear mind and heart, holding true to the vision and calling of sharing the Gospel without allowing his focus to be diverted to the hurts and opposition from those who were against him every step of the way.
