Show Notes

In John 10:10, Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (ESV). Unlike a thief, the Lord Jesus does not come for selfish reasons. He comes to give, not to get. He comes that people may have life in Him that is meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and eternal. We receive this abundant life the moment we accept Him as our Savior.

 

This abundant life is spiritual, not material. It is concerned with a relationship with God. It is a constant process of learning, practicing, and nurturing, as well as failing, recovering, adjusting, enduring, and overcoming.

Episode 450: You Will Be My Witnesses

We explore what we know about the name of the book: Acts of the Apostles, its author, and its most important themes. The story of Acts really begins with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and Peter’s dramatic sermon; the result is a flame that spreads all across the Roman Empire. After the church is planted in Jerusalem, the believers are spiritually empowered and guided from there into “Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). This, in a nutshell, is the entire theme of Acts.   Additional scriptures referenced include Revelation 21:14; Matthew 10:2; Mark 3:14; Luke 6:13; John 6:71; Acts 6:2; 1 Corinthians 15:5; Ephesians 2:20; Luke 1:1-4; Matthew 28:18-20; and Mark 16:15-18. ...
