Missionary Michael Brown urges us to live out our faith in complete obedience to Christ. We are called to not only know God’s heart but to act upon it. Obedience is either complete or compromised: which will you choose?
Scripture: John 15:12-14
Pastor Mimi Kim considers the lives of Simeon and Anna who eagerly awaited the coming of Jesus, and how we now wait for the blessed hope that is Jesus’ second coming. During this Christmas season, are we waiting proactively with great expectation, just like Simeon and Anna did?
Scripture: Luke 2:21-38
Pastor Kyu Kim asks: are we hearing the Holy Spirit? The first missionaries were sent from the church Antioch after they sought God’s heart. We are called to be the church of open door: to send out and to welcome in. Am I willing to go?
Scripture: Acts 13:1-3
Pastor Mimi Kim explores four themes from the life of John the Baptist to help us truly prepare for Jesus’ return. In this Christmas season we are reminded to focus on Christ and to keep bearing spiritual fruit. So, let us heed the voice calling in the wilderness and be forerunners of Christ.
Scripture: Matthew 3:1-10
Pastor Kyu Kim teaches about Antioch – the first Gentile church. It was founded by ordinary people – not superstars of the Bible – and became the center for missions in the early church. Again we see how Barnabas encouraged the church and, together with Paul, made many disciples. God will use those He chooses, so we must prepare ourselves!
Scripture: Acts 11:19-26
Pastor Kyu Kim reminds us: Never write anyone off, for God can reach anyone. God always opens our hearts to reach people. God is opening doors for us to expand His kingdom. Pastor Q takes us through the lives of Cornelius and Peter to see how God opened heaven and doors for them.
Scripture: Acts 10:1-48
Pastor Kyu Kim reminds us that God can reach anyone and that we should never write anyone off. On the road to Damascus, Saul encountered God. He then experienced not a sudden conversion but rather a sudden surrender after Ananias obeyed God and went to him. PQ asks us: are we on our Damascus Road? Are we an Ananias to anyone?
Scripture: Acts 9:1-22
