Acts 20:17-38 Paul’s farewell tour is a testimony to God’s grace. Our farewell tour starts today. Will our farewell tour point to Jesus or to self?
Sermon Scripture: Esther 8-10 The Big Idea: When we stand strong, God will deliver on his promises. When we turn our heart away from him we end up in exile. Esther gets a reversal of fortune from the king. God reminds people of their upcoming reversal of home. Israel gets a reversal from victims to victors. The Persians and Medes feared the reversal of position. When we stand strong in Christ, no reversal is necessary.
Psalm 46 God is still our proven help. (v. 1-3) God still sits on His throne. (v. 4-7) Be still and know that He is GOD! (v. 8-11) The world around you may feel like it is crumbling apart, but take hope in the proven power of our almighty God.
