Pastor Post - June 28, 2017



It was awesome to celebrate baptism and David’s 5th anniversary last Sunday, and to commission our Haiti team to be sent out!  Wonderful day.


This Sunday we will be in Acts 16, which for many reasons is one of the most exciting and encouraging chapters in Acts.


It is where we see God’s Macedonian Call to Paul, which resulted in the gospel moving into Europe for the first time.


It is where we see the transformation of three people:  A wealthy woman (Lydia), a slave girl, and a jailer.  Their stories are simply riveting!


So read over Acts 16:6-40 in preparation, and ponder the following:

  • What do verses 6-10 teach about the need to hold our plans loosely, and allow the Spirit to lead us?


  • What do verses 6-10 teach us about trusting God when he closes doors?


  • What does verse 14 teach us about God’s role in people coming to faith, and our role as witnesses?


  • How was the slave girl similar to people in bondage in our world today?


  • How did the witness of the missionaries influence the jailer even before he asked, “What must I do to be saved?”


We’ll examine those things and much, much more this Sunday.  You don’t want to miss out on this chapter.  Come and call a friend to meet you at FBC.
