"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." - Acts 1.8
The Gospel's came with a message of the perfect man Jesus who died, and was resurrected for the sins of many. The book of Act's is that message going forward by imperfect men to the ends of the earth in Jesus Name. Those whose lives have been changed by Christ are those who are eye witnesses to the reality of his work. The book of Acts is the history of the early church, but it is also more than that. It is the an account of the Holy Spirit moving amongst his people to bring renewal to a broken world. While the book of ACTS is known as the "Acts of the Apostles" it could really be called the "Acts of the Holy Spirit".
There is no greater work that we can ever engage in our lifetime than the advancement of the Gospel in the world around us. That we would know that we are Christ's witnesses to Orlando, to Central Florida, and to the ends of the earth.
This series is sure to change our lives, to cause us to fall more deeply in love with Jesus and our church. The book of Acts will also equip us and send us out on HIS mission by the power of the Holy Spirit as we proclaim the Gospel to our neighbors, friends, coworkers, and community.
Will you join us for this life transforming series in the book of Acts at the Downtown Orlando YMCA?
Part 1 study in the book of Hebrews
The book of Psalms has been referred to as "The Hymnbook of the Old Testament," a collection of songs to be sung by God's people in response to His goodness, glory, and grace — most surely revealed in the face of Jesus Christ. Jesus came to put a song in the mouths of God's people. We sing psalms of praise to Him as our Savior and King. We sing psalms of lament to Him as our High Priest and Advocate. We sing psalms of thanksgiving to Him for who He is and what He’s done for us. We sing psalms of remembrance to Him as we survey all of redemptive history which finds its fulfillment in Him. We sing psalms of confidence to Him because He is trustworthy. And, we sing psalms of wisdom to Him because He is wisdom personified and the source of wisdom.
In preparation for our study of the book Hebrews which we will begin in October our focus on the Psalms will be to look at the Psalms the are referenced in Hebrews. Together we will see how the Old Testament Psalms point us to the person and work of Jesus Christ.
The heart sings of that in which it delights. Join us for our "Songs of the Savior" series, as we delight in the LORD and sing of His goodness, glory, and grace.
Everyone seems to have their own take on who Jesus is. Some will say he was a good man, some will say he was a wonderful teacher, some will say he was just a prophet, and others will say he was a crazy man (including his own family). Even those who confess that he is the “Son of God who takes away the sin of the world” will often soften him or try to form him into their own image. But who does Jesus say that he is? Who is the REAL JESUS? Join us as we explore the answers to these profound questions, along with the implications for our very lives.
