The sermon series on Acts of the Apostles (which I first wrote about here) continues. I preached on May 6th and May 13th on chapters 10 and 11, respectively. Many others have said this many times, but the story told in Acts 10 & 11 is the most significant story the church has. As I argued a few years ago, Acts 10:35 should be our “leadoff hitter, our first responder, our top go-to text”:
God has just shown me that I should no longer consider any human being unclean or profane… God accepts every person regardless of background or culture. God welcomes all who revere Him and do right.
How much better would Christianity be if that was our main mantra?
As I keep reiterating, sermons need to be heard not just read. So here’s “The Best Worst Buffet” on Acts 10 from May 6, 2018. Visuals I used are below the audio.
My intended thesis was, “God seeks to subvert our penchant for exclusivity.” Let me know what you hear though.
This seems long enough; I’ll give the May 13th sermon it’s own post.
UPDATE: May 13th sermon on Acts 11 here.
