Episodes

Acts 18:1-17 (God Saves His People; Ken Duffy; 1.22.17)

1/21/2017
More
Paul is discouraged... and frustrated. He knows God is sovereign. He knows it is God's ultimate plan that is being done. But nonetheless he laments over the hardheadedness of the Jewish people as they broadly and continuously reject the gospel of Jesus Christ. In Paul's despair, the Lord gives him a comforting reminder and clear instruction.

Acts 17:16-34 | Evangelism in the First Century (Ken Duffy; 1.15.17)

1/14/2017
More
In Acts 17:16-34 we journey with Paul to the great city of Athens, Greece. While Paul awaits his partners in ministry, he is greatly troubled by what he sees. What bothered Paul so much in this modern city and how did he respond? This week we get a glimpse at how Paul witnessed to a secular culture.

Acts 17:10-15 | Examine The Scriptures (Ken Duffy; 11.27.16)

12/17/2016
More
Paul and Silas are in Berea, once again proclaiming the gospel. The men are met with a different group of Jews than those in Thessalonica. Rather than quickly rejecting the mens claims and seeking to do them harm, they instead put a lot of labor into searching through the Scriptures to validate their claims. As a result, many of the Berean Jews received the Lord Jesus as their promised savior.

Acts 17:1-9 | Proving Jesus From The Old Testament (Ken Duffy; 11.20.16)

11/19/2016
More
All of Scripture points to Jesus. From Genesis to Revelation, stories, characters, and prophecies... it is all a shadow cast by Jesus, the Christ. This week we take a look at Paul reasoning with a synagogue full of Jews and Greeks to prove Jesus is the Christ and that he must suffer. He did this using the Scriptures... the writings from the Law of Moses, the Psalms, and the Prophets (which we commonly refer to in our day as the Old Testament). Today we look at what it is like to prove...

Acts 16:11-15 | God Is Sovereign Over Everything (Ken Duffy, 10.16.16)

10/15/2016
More
God's election—It is a difficult doctrine for many to accept, but one that we must because it is true. In our passage today we see yet another example of this truth when God saves Lydia. While studying this passage and being reminded of the sovereignty of God over all things, we apply this truth to an important time in our history... the 2016 Presidential Election. God is either sovereign or he's not. Will you bless God your words and actions in the coming weeks?

Acts 16:6-10 | When God Says No (Ken Duffy, 10.9.16)

10/8/2016
More
They didn't know exactly where they were going or what would happen... but in Acts 16:6-10 we see Paul, Silas, and Timothy on a mission to proclaim the gospel and strengthen established churches. During their journey we see God stop them from going certain places that seemingly would have been good to go to... but it wasn't God's plan for them. This passage leaves us with some unanswered questions but also provides much guidance and encouragement for the Christian.

Acts 16:1-5 - Forsaking Freedoms for the Gospel (Ken Duffy, 10.2.16)

10/1/2016
More
At first it seems like strange timing that right after the controversy and confusion of how one is saved, that Paul goes and circumcised Timothy before brining the good news to the rest of the churches that we are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. But with careful observation and a thorough understanding of Paul and his teachings, this decision makes perfect sense and teaches us an important lesson.

Acts 15:36-41 (Disagreement Within Leadership)

9/24/2016
More
The great breakup. It seems like a troubling situation between Paul and Barnabas as they have a dispute between each other and split ways. This week we try to unpack the situation and understand more of what's going on. There aren't too many details we have to go off of but we can make some reasonable assumptions and also learn from this situation between the two men.

Acts 14:1-7 (Straightening A Crooked Path)

7/30/2016
More
The mission continues. Paul and Barnabas are continuing their missionary journey, proclaiming the gospel everywhere they go. In the beginning of Acts 14 we see this work continue, along with the expected opposition that accompanies their work. Attempts were made to distort and confuse the minds of the people who were hearing the truth proclaimed by the apostles.

Acts 13:1-3 (Intimacy With God Through Fasting)

7/9/2016
More
We focus on the first few verses of Acts 13 this week and look at the role of fasting as it relates to desiring God and depending on the Holy Spirit for guidance in our life. The church at Antioch was mission focused and committed to the work of bringing the good news to the nations. It all revolved around unified worship.

Acts 12:20-24 (The Suicide Of Salvation)

7/2/2016
More
Acts 12:20-24... the contrast of man with God. "Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." (Matthew 10:39). In this section of Acts we look at the stark contrast of king Herod as a representative of man, to God. We look into the disease infecting man and the cure that is the gospel. The powerful reality of the call of Jesus is as Bonhoeffer famously said, "When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die.".

Acts 12:1-19 (Dead World. Living Joy.)

6/25/2016
More
Acts 12 begins and ends with the clear and accurate contrast of the death and reign of destruction, to the joy, hope, and life that is in Christ. We also see a very purposeful plan of God for the Church to be saturated in prayer so that they may rejoice when he clearly answers their prayers.

Acts 11:1-18 (One Baptism)

5/14/2016
More
In the beginning of Acts 11 we look at the work of baptism and what mans role is in it. Peter is explaining to the church in Jerusalem why he went to the Gentiles with the gospel. A significant reality we observe in this event is that Peter was simply obeying God's instructions. God did all the saving work but used Peter for it. In this passage we look closely at the work of baptism, what it is, what it does, who does it and how.

Acts 10 (The Sin Of Partiality)

5/2/2016
More
In Acts 10 we see the gospel begin to reach the Gentile people. It is the good news of Jesus starting to reach the rest of the world. Peter is shown by God that God is not a God that shows favoritism. The work he has planned is good news for the entire world. The partiality shown by the Jewish people of Israel has been radically done away with by Peter's vision and the accompanying work of the Holy Spirit coming upon the Gentiles.

Acts 9:32-43 (Be Healed. The Bigger Picture.)

4/27/2016
More
At the end of Acts 9 we observe two, what appear to be random, miracles by the hand of Peter in Lydda (Lod) and Joppa. However, a little insight reveals that two important things were accomplished here: 1) Peter's ministry was validated by God to the people and 2) the prophet Isaiah had spoke of this remnant coming to Christ in Isaiah 33. We then visit the important truth of all of this. God's healing isn't some trivial bodily and temporary healing as we witness in many miracles in the...

Acts 9:10-19 Part 2 (Suffering Is God's Design)

4/11/2016
More
In the beginning of Acts chapter 9 we first looked at the radical conversion of Saul and Christ's identity with the Church. Now we look closer at why God saved Saul (Paul) and what his purpose is as a redeemed disciple of Jesus. More radically, we look at the reality of God ordaining suffering for his Church. Why do we suffer? Does God allow it? Can he stop it?

Acts 9:1-19 (God's Election. God's Will.)

4/2/2016
More
In Acts 9:1-19 we see a clear divine intervention in Saul's life. Saul (Paul) was redeemed by God in his grace for his specific plan and purpose. The Lord's sovereign election is no different today. We are rescued by grace through faith, it is not our doing.

Acts 8:26-40 (Philip's Ministry)

3/19/2016
More
In Acts 8:26-40 we look at the ministry of Philip, one of the first deacons, as he is on mission to proclaim the good news about Jesus. Philip must listen to the guiding of the Holy Spirit as he does the work of an evangelist.

Acts 8:14-25 (It's God's Work)

3/12/2016
More
We depend on God to accomplish anything. Without him at work we do everything in vain. In Acts 8:14-25 we see how being part of God's program allows us to do miraculous works in the name of Jesus.
