Acts in action

This year at Trinity we're studying the book of Acts, which is all about the gospel spreading like fire, transforming sinners into Christ-followers.  That's not just ancient history.  Each one of us are living examples of God's saving grace as much as the new converts in Acts.  But God didn't save us to sit; He saved us to go - go with the gospel that is our hope to other sinners who need the world's best news.

I was recently spurred on in my own need to go - to go wisely and compassionately - to the sinners in my world by the story of a man from the UK named Mez McConnell.  As you listen to his story, think with thankfulness of how God in grace has rescued you - and calls you to go to others with wisdom and compassion and the best news.
