Acts: Holy Boldness in a Hostile Environment
As our culture gets more resistant and hostile to the gospel, we are tempted to retreat in silence. We can lose a holy boldness and be intimidated into going under the radar with our faith. It's tempting. How to get that boldness back and keep it? One way is to see it in others. We will be examining in Acts the courageous efforts of Paul (stoned, left for dead, and then walking back into the city... seriously!!!) and Barnabas to bring the gospel to their generation. They will inspire us to boldness and to a stick-to-it-ness that won't easily be intimidated. These things are increasingly the need of the hour.
