Series Aims
  • To understand that God works in every situation, no matter how difficult, to bring people to know and love Jesus.
  • To understand that God has planned who will respond to the gospel and how so it is worth continuing to share it.
  • To understand that God wants all people of every religion to hear the good news and trust in Jesus.
Series Overview
This series (Part 3 of 4 on mission) considers the growth of Jesus’ Church through the spread of the gospel to ‘the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8). It examines two aspects of Paul’s missionary journey:
  • God’s Faithfulness – God promised throughout the Old Testament that he would gather together a people for himself from every nation; Jesus promised his disciples that he would grow his Church. In Acts we see God’s faithfulness in keeping these promises – he ruled over the spread of the gospel and sent Paul to those who would receive it (week 1); he worked through difficult situations so that unlikely people could hear the good news too (week 2); and he opened people’s hearts to respond in faith (weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4).
  • Man’s Faith – Paul trusted God’s promises and went, by faith, to preach to those who had not yet heard the good news. He made the most of every opportunity wherever God sent him (weeks 1 and 2); he continued prayerfully even in difficult circumstances (weeks 2 and 3); and he spoke about God’s faithfulness in Jesus with people of all backgrounds, nations and religions (weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4).
These four passages in Acts clearly show that God is in control of all things and is faithful in keeping his promises, but also that we have a role to play. God uses men, women and children who walk by faith in Jesus to accomplish his plans for the gospel to go out to the ends of the earth and for people everywhere to be saved.
