Answer the Door, Rhoda - The Spirit Experience - Acts 12

Answer the Door, Rhoda - The Spirit Experience  - Acts 12

Rhoda and all her Christian friends are praying for Peter. He is imprisoned by a murderous Herod, and suddenly he is miraculously freed from prison. He then goes to his praying friend’s house, knocks on the door, and yells, “Let me in, guys!” Rhoda hears Peter’s voice and thinks it’s a ghost and runs inside. Answer the door, Rhoda.

Pursuing Purity - The Spirit Experience - Acts 8-9

Pursuing Purity - The Spirit Experience  - Acts 8-9

Saul sees his job as one of purity. He is trying to hunt down this new strand of idolatry, those followers of Jesus (this so called “The Way”) and imprison them.  His job is done so well that those in “The Way” have left Jerusalem and have begun spreading to the ends of the earth. But his job is not done yet; he chases them to Damascus to imprison them. However, as he is pursuing purity, he discovers that their spreading has already happened.

Letting Go - The Spirit Experience - Acts 6-8

Letting Go - The Spirit Experience  - Acts 6-8

The story of Stephen in Acts is remarkable. He’s a man who comes to prominence when the disciples needed help with the dishes. This man was a thorn of discomfort to the religious leaders of the temple, and they began to rile up the crowds against him saying Stephen wanted to destroy the temple. He then tells the story of God’s people saying that it has always been about letting go.

The Beautiful Name - The Spirit Experience - Acts 3-5

The Beautiful Name - The Spirit Experience  - Acts 3-5

Outside the temple there was a gate called Beautiful. This gate was a sign post as to how the kingdom of God was here with the people, and that kingdom was making everything beautiful. However, outside this beautiful gate is a disabled beggar asking for change. This gate is hardly living up to the expectation of its name, but then Peter comes by and gives this beggar life and beauty in a name that is above every name.

This Weeks Reflection Questions

  • What is your favorite Easter memory?

  • When are the times in your life when you doubted that Jesus was actually alive, reigning as king?

  • Take a look at verses 5-8, what does the angel says that gives them hope? How do they respond?

  • How does the Easter resurrection give you hope today?

  • The Art of Life

  • You were created, but you were not just as a sack of unfeeling chemicals. You were created as a great work of art. But what if the world does not seem like a great work of art? What if I think my life is just a dark mess? I imagine that's what the women carrying embalming spices to Jesus’ grave thought. However, what they saw that morning changed how they saw the world and changed how they saw themselves. Christ is risen, they saw the Art of Life.

The Art of Life - The Jesus Experience - Luke 24

The Art of Life - The Jesus Experience  - Luke 24

You were created, but you were not just as a sack of unfeeling chemicals. You were created as a great work of art. But what if the world does not seem like a great work of art?

When To Weep - The Jesus Experience - Luke 19

When To Weep - The Jesus Experience  - Luke 19

Everything is going great! Jesus is finally showing us who he truly is. He came riding into Jerusalem to so many people crying out “Hosanna” and “You are the King of Kings.” All Jesus has to do now is take his rightful place on the throne in Jerusalem and in our hearts. Jesus must feel amazing today, but why is he over there weeping while overlooking Jerusalem?

From Back to the Front - The Jesus Experience - Luke 18

From Back to the Front - The Jesus Experience  - Luke 18

Jesus says that the man went away justified. But who is this man? What if he did not deserve to be justified? What if he had hurt me or had stolen something from me? What if he was a tax collector, or if he was too young, or blind or too short? Yes, Jesus said he went away justified. Well then if that man went away justified, then perhaps I could as well.

The Picture - The Jesus Experience - Luke 15

The Picture - The Jesus Experience  - Luke 15

Jesus gives us a picture of the kingdom of God here in Luke 15. The picture is of a celebration when the lost have been found. Look at how the woman celebrates when the coin is found, look at how the man celebrates when the sheep is found, and look at how the father celebrates when his lost son is found. But this leaves us with a question: will we join the party or complain on the outside.
