Every Christian who has ever been called to "more", called to go deep in their walk, has struggled with doubt. The Apostle Peter had them too and he didn't know what to do with them until he allowed God's simple words change his heart and mind. Acts 10 teaches us how to hear God call us out of our fear in order to see his will from his perspective.

In this sermon we are introduced to the mighty and meek Roman Centurion Cornelius. From all external and internal appearances he was a man who had everything, that is besides the one thing that would make him complete - - - to know Jesus Christ. God sends Peter in response to Cornelius's prayers; who or what has God put in your life to draw you to him? Will you resist or receive his answer to your prayers?

Last week we learned about Saul, the persecutor of the church who met Christ and became the Apostle Paul. This week we take a look at the earliest days of his ministry and how God used his testimony to subside the concerns of the early church who knew him as a dangerous individual. His example shows us how a testimony of faithfulness proves to everyone around us that God's love is alive in us.

In Acts 8:9 we meet Simon the Sorcerer, a man used to subvert the salvation of the Samaritan people. Often times we will encounter those who interfere with or even counterfeit true spirituality causing distractions in ministry. How do we guard against this kind of work and more importantly, how do we guard our hearts from becoming subverters ourselves?

This this second message that introduces us to the persecution of the early church, when Christians scattered with the gospel on their lips. They did not allow their circumstances to steal their message, in fact their circumstances were nothing more than opportunity to speak Christ!
