In this forth and final series in our study of Acts, “Church on a Mission: Power to the People,” we transition from surveying the scope of all God was doing in the first-century church to now picking up a magnifying glass and examining the impact of one life completely surrendered to God.
That person, of course, was the apostle Paul, God’s instrument in those early days of the church when amazing opposition led to supernatural results. Paul’s personal mission was to follow Christ to the limit-wherever, whatever, however the Spirit of God directed Him to go.
The power to turn the world upside down was God’s Word, communicated through God’s people committed to God’s purpose and empowered by Jesus Christ Himself, living His life by His Spirit in His followers-then and now.
In these four inspiring messages from James MacDonald about the final days of Acts, you’ll witness the power God gives to anyone who will follow Him in absolute surrender.
There is a power from the Lord Jesus Christ available only to followers who are 100% surrendered to Him. It’s the power to make a difference. It’s a supernatural power that grows us up to bear great fruit that we might glorify Him. As we see over and over through the book o acts, this power is not personality or gift-driven. This power to turn the world upside down comes from Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus gives power to the people when He lives His life in you and me through His spirit. It’s this power that sends us and our churches on a mission.
