Acts 17: The God Who Can Be Known

By Dennis Easter

God has made Himself known to us, so there is no question about His existence and His care for us. Pacific Coast and Valleys District Supervisor Dennis Easter says: “Where we find ourselves is not an accident with God. He has structured our lives in order to attract us to Him.” Dennis says Acts 17 is not only an answer for those seeking God; it is also a powerful reminder for those of us who have been found by God.

By Alex Pacheco

Acts 10: Knowing and Following the Voice of the Lord

Southwest District Supervisor Kimberly Dirmann asks what would have happened if Peter had questioned the word of the Lord in Acts 10. She says Peter would have missed out on a huge and God-intended breakthrough, and she shares why it’s important for us to pray and diligently listen for the voice of the Lord every day.

Acts 8 and 9: Covet God’s Presence

By Glenn Burris Jr.

In the midst of economic and political unrest, both nationally and globally, Foursquare President Glenn Burris Jr. says the church “could rise to be a voice of hope and reason.” Events occurring today, such as persecution in many places, are akin to what was happening to early Christians, he says, and yet God used them to advance the mission of His church. Glenn exhorts us not to be shaped by our culture, but to influence it for God and to become a place of refuge and strength for others.

By Robb Hattem

Northeast District Supervisor Robb Hattem says that when the enemy is wearing us down with warfare, it can cut to the core of our being, tempting us to shrink back and not give ourselves completely to the ministry. Robb encourages us to notice all the miracles that God is doing around us, to stand firm in our faith in Christ, and to do the work of the ministry with conviction.

Remi shares how he came to understand this truth from Acts 6 while he taught leadership workshops in East Africa. It’s not only an inspirational lesson in culture shift, but also a spiritual challenge to be open for everything God wants to do wherever we live and serve.
