The Church has always had barriers to break through and in Acts 10, God moved and shattered the barriers that once stood between the Jews and the gentiles. He broke down the religious and cultural barriers and answered the question, ‘is salvation for the Jews only?’ with an emphatic NO! Acts: 10:1-48
Last week we learned about the martyrdom of Stephen. Instead of responding in fear, the Church grew both in numbers and resilience and, in doing so, testified to the truth of Jesus’ Words. Acts 8:1-8
Zephaniah warned the people of Judah that time had run out and God would execute His justice and vengeance on sin. But it would not be the end of the world. For as we will see this morning, after the storm of judgement comes, God promises to make all things new.
Psalm 15 help steers us back to the most important questions. It reorients, redirects, and realigns our hearts which are so prone to wander. We need the Holy Spirit to take the Word of God and apply it to our wandering hearts and minds.

In Ephesus, some opponents had begun to restrict the Gospel to only a select group. There were certain criteria that had to be met in order for you to qualify for the good news of Jesus Christ. This was a HORRIFIC belief that had to be stopped dead in its tracks. 1 Timothy 2:1-7
