Here we have a message within a message, one about resisting God. Setting an example for us, Stephen defended himself against false accusations and defended the gospel in the process. Have you surrendered to God, or are you resisting?
Here, Bro. Jeff focuses on the Biblical instruction for church leadership – the requirements, the responsibilities, and the respect that should be given. We are challenged to examine our own position. Do we have the qualities of a leader? Are we respectful of those who have our best interest at heart?
You’ll want to catch Part 13 of this series if you missed it. Here, Bro. Jeff continues with examples of the incredible power of the Holy Spirit. If you are a believer, then you are empowered by the Holy Spirit – all because of the resurrected Christ. We hope you are encouraged in your labor for the Lord.
God is faithful to protect us in our tribulations and temptations. We can trust Him and rely on Him; He is always faithful when we depend on Him. Bro. Jeff encourages us in this message on the trustworthiness of God.
