New LeadershipBy Pastor Brad Murphy Acts 1:12-26
April 19, 2015
New things smell new. New things look new. New things also need some-getting-used-to, because new things mean change.
God has new things planned for you. Things that you may have heard about, but haven’t experienced. Things that may terrify or excite you.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert.
– Isaiah 43:19
At the conclusion of Jesus’ earthly ministry He commissioned a band of followers to carry the message of His Kingdom to the farthest reaches of the earth. He promised them power to witness. He promised them victory. He promised them Himself.
In the sermon series, NEW, we will study all the wonderful, powerful, and difficult things the disciple Peter, and other disciples, experienced in the days, weeks, and years after Jesus resurrection.
