This week's sermon: Acts 14-Hardships, Healing, and Humility

Acts 14.
We see God at work in this chapter in the midst of hardships and persecution to strengthen the missionaries, and to reach those who have never heard. We see God at work healing those who are sick, proving himself through miracles, and closing the gap between the Jews and Gentiles. We see God working in Paul and Barnabas to bring humility even when others want to give them the status of gods. They complete their mission to take the good news of the gospel to the provinces of Asia and the Gentiles, and return to Antioch rejoicing and praising God for the great things they have seen him do as they were faithful to preach the message of salvation to those who would believe.
