Dear Faith Community Church Family,
As Christians we believe that because the Bible is God’s Word, it is our ultimate standard of truth and completely trustworthy to guide us and to give us solutions to life’s problems. Christians, however, can easily go wrong when we go to the Bible for solutions to our problems without ever allowing the Bible to define what the problem actually is.When we do this, we are using the Bible more like a self-help guide than the authoritative Word of God which centers on Jesus Christ and the good news of salvation. While the Bible does indeed speak to issues like marital conflict or financial struggles, we must allow the Scriptures to define the problem and to give the solution. In Paul’s speech to King Agrippa, he very clearly says that the greatest problem we have is that we live in darkness and desperately need forgiveness and new life in Jesus. Praise God that he has not only told us what our problem is, but he has also taken it upon himself to provide the solution to the problem of our sin by giving us a Savior, Jesus Christ.
This Sunday we pick back up with our Acts series You Will Be My Witnesses. The sermon text for this Sunday is Acts 25:23-26:32.
