The book of Acts follows God's set plan for His church.  As the Lord commissioned the Apostles, they were to take the Gospel from Jerusalem into Judea, Samaria, and finally to the remotest parts of the earth.  In other word's, God's plan was that the church would be a global religion; not just the religion of Israel.

Acts records how, at the Holy Spirit's leading, the church expanded from Jerusalem into the countrys...

Today's culture has reduced motherhood to one who is a "birthing person."  In other words, the role of the mother is a purely physical one.  But this view of motherhood diminishes the Biblical view of motherhood, which endows the mother with both value and importance in the work of the Gospel.

In today's lesson, we survey the many roles a mother plays and discover a mother is so much more than the modern view of mot...

Throughout Paul's letter, he has overflowed with praise for this young church.  He has been impressed by their faith in the face of persecution.  Despite their young status, this church already distinguished itself as an example of faith and love to the churches in Macedonia and Achaia, that is, Greece.

But now Paul moves on to so-called practical matters.  Answering questions as well as addressing issues within the church, Pau...

For those with children, especially thinking of fathers, there is nothing sweeter to the ear than to hear your young child call to you, "Daddy!"  We remember the days when, after a long day of work, we walk into the door to excited exclamations, "Daddy's home!!" and often to the relief of a weary mother.  An ideal picture for us might be sitting at the breakfast table, coffee in hand, and have your child come in...

Happy Easter and thank you for listening to today's lesson.

In today's lesson, the leadership of Atlantic Gospel Chapel share the pulpit to consider Easter considering four factors:

  • Who is Jesus?
  • Why does the life of Jesus matter?
  • Why did Jesus have to die?
  • What does the resurrection accomplish?
  • We pray you will be blessed through the teaching of God's Holy Word.

    Most of us have experienced loss of one sort or another.  This includes the loss of money and possessions, the loss of position or job, or even the loss of friendships and the loss of loved ones.  For many, these times of loss, times of suffering, become a true struggle as we try to reconcile the concept of a loving God with the reality of suffering.

    During these times, many questions arise.  If God is all powerful, all knowing and...

    Many of us grew up on stories told in books and movies in which we imagined what it might be like to live in that world.  The world of George Lucas in a galaxy far, far away, where we imagine what it might be like to be a Jedi knight, or perhaps a smuggler.  Or perhaps it was the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, where we imagine ourselves in Middle Earth, joining the fellowship to destroy the one ring of power in the fires of Mount Doom.  ...

    Most of us have lost loved ones.  These losses often have a lasting impact upon our own lives.  But suppose, for a moment, that one of those lost loved ones returned from the dead; what impact would that have on our lives.

    The truth is, there is One who has died and rose again.  Jesus suffered the death of the cross, but rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures.  So the question really is, what impact does that have...

    The old Sunday School song reminded us as children, "O be careful, little eyes what you see," and "O be careful, little ears what you hear," and again, "O be careful, little feet where you go."  The exhortation and implied question is, do the things to which we expose ourselves, together with our walk, align with what we claim is in our hearts?  Or has been said, do you walk the talk?

    But the song also urge...

    Mankind shares a single destiny.  At some point, unless the Lord returns, every one of us will die.  Death is the just penalty of a Holy God for our sin (Genesis 2:61-17; Romans 6:23).  But while we all share a common destiny, we do not all share the same destination.  The truth of Scripture is that our existence does not end at death.  Rather, we will continue to exist in the presence of God in His glory, or we will exist separate...

    False religions tend to have one thing in common, they will elevate the teaching and traditions of men to the same level of Scripture.  In today's lesson, the Pharisees take on Jesus for the fact that His disciples eat without washing their hands.

    This is not an issue of cleanliness for the Pharisees; they are not concerned that they are eating with dirty hands.  Rather, the concern of the Pharisees is spiritual defilement, eq...

    As Paul continues his letter to the church in Thessalonica, he calls to mind the sufferings this young church endured at the hands of their own countrymen, just as the churches in Judea suffered at the hands of their Jewish kinsmen.  Because of such suffering, Paul feared this young church might fall away.  This deep concern caused him to send Timothy from Athens into Thessalonica to see how they fared.  And the news coming from th...

    Throughout the book of Acts, we have seen growth of the church, which is then met by persecution.  And as the persecution grew, the church also grew.  When Stephen was martyred with Saul's approval, the church spread throughout Judea and into the surrounding areas.  With Saul's conversion, this persecution eased up a bit.

    But then Herod Agrippa comes onto the scene.  Acts 12 opens with the arrest and execution of James, th...

    When we come to the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13, the general question that comes to mind is, which of the soils represent the believer and which represent those who have not trusted Jesus for salvation.  The first soil is the pathway onto which the seed falls.  As Jesus explained to His disciples, this is the one who hears the Word but does not understand it and Satan comes and takes it away.  This points to the unbeliever.

    In Acts 10, we see Peter do something which no "good" Jewish person would do--he entered the home of a gentile, namely Cornelius, a Roman Centurion described as, "a devout man and one who feared God with all his household, and gave many alms to the Jewish people and prayed to God continually" (Acts 10:2 NASB).

    In response to a vision from the Lord, Cornelius called for Peter to come.  At the same time, Peter had hi...

    The Christian life is a call to a daily walk.  We recognize that Satan is ever ready to trip up the believer.  We must therefore take care to occupy ourselves with prayer, the study of God's Word, fellowship with fellow believers, and to walk in obedience to Him daily.  The problem, however, is without intending it to happen, we find ourselves in a rut.  We pray, when we think of it.  We read Scripture as if it were any other b...

    What were some of the challenges facing the early church in the first century?  Does the church today face these same dangers?

    Jude opens his letter to the church identifying himself, not as the half-brother of Jesus, but as a bond servant of Jesus.  He notes his intention to write regarding "our common salvation;" an encouragement which rejoiced in the implications of the finished work of the cross.  Instead, he felt the ...

    Christmas is among the favorite holidays of most people.  It is a time for families to gather; a time for giving gifts and time away from work.  But Christmas is so much more.  In this week's lesson, we examine four aspects of the Incarnation; that time when God the Son, as the second Person of the Trinity, took upon Himself flesh, coming to earth as that babe in a lowly manger.  We look at:

  • The Preincarnate Christ, examining ...

    Before the Lord Jesus ascended into heaven, He left His apostles with this charge, beginning with Jerusalem, carry the Gospel message from Jerusalem, then to Judea, to Samaria, and finally the ends of the world.  In the first several chapters of Acts, we witnessed the Gospel exploding in Jerusalem and expanding into Judea.  In Acts 8, using Philip, the Holy Spirit carried the message into Samaria.  And now we see that the Lord has ...

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
