Today the Franklin’s hosted church, Simeon read the story, and Justin preached.
Jesus went to find John who was preaching nearby. John was baptizing many, many people. They wondered who John was. John denied being both Elijah or the Messiah. Jesus and John met (most likely for the first time) and John baptized Jesus. Then the Heavens opened up and God to spoke to the people. “This is My Son in Whom I am well pleased.”
We started with Acts 2 and Justin wanted to talk about conversion. Justin read Acts 2:1-47
What does it mean to surrender? What prompts surrender in a town or in person?
- Knowing you’re beaten
We read Acts 16, the story of a jailer being converted and then talked about the Roman Empire.
Josh Acts 17:22-34
If you surrender to someone, what does that mean?
- What happens next is not up to you
- You gave up
- You’re recognizing the victory or superiority or the other party.
We gain way more than we lose when we surrender to God.
Justin then read Luke 9:57-62 and we closed with the Lord’s Prayer.
