Acts 13 – In David’s Footsteps

by

This week, Sarah examines Paul’s preach in Acts 13. He cites David, as an example of a man after God’s own heart, and who served God in his generation. Are we able to say the same?

Acts 6 – Leadership

by

As we re-examine Acts in the light of it’s legacy for the early Church, Sarah explores the principles of leadership in the choosing of Stephen in Acts 6. In God’s kingdom, there is a ‘No capes’ approach to leadership. We are all called to be leaders, you don’t have to be a superman, and it […]

Acts 5 – Heart

by

As we re-examine Acts, Rob Simons looks at the events of Acts 5. In only his second time preaching, Rob shares part of his testimony, and looks at how God instructs our hearts. He desires to give us hearts of flesh, not of stone. The trials that come against us are to be expected as […]

Acts 3 – Healing

by

This week, Dave talks on Acts 3, in our ‘Acts Expanded’ Series. God is a miraculous God, who delights to bring healing and wholeness to his people, but what about when our prayers are not answered, and we don’t see the healing we seek? Using scripture and testimonies from Highway members who have seen miraculous healing […]

Acts 2 – Joy

by

This week, Jill talks about the events of Acts 2, and how those principles apply to the early Church and our lives. All that mattered to the new converts in Acts was the joy Jesus put before them. Are we joyful? Do we practice the joy given us?

Acts 28 – Focus

by

Dave brings our study of Acts to a close with the final message of Acts 28. We come to end of Paul’s recorded journey, and see that he still had not lost his focus, after all that he had been through, and after all he had seen. Without focus, we may spend our energy on […]

Acts 22 – Dipitty Hapitty Bag

by

Following on from last week’s focus on handling change, Sue takes us through the tumultuous events around Paul’s arrest in Jerusalem, and his defence before the ruling powers in that area. His identity was absolutely secure in Christ, and so Paul could endure all things. He had deposited good things in his ‘God box’, spent […]

Acts 20 – A Time of Change

by

As we draw towards the end of our seven-month series on Acts, Jo talks about change. Life is full of change, and it is bittersweet to let go of the old to embrace the new. We live in a time of national and international change, and our response is important. Paul’s behaviour in Acts 20 is […]

Acts 21 – Prophecy

by

This week, Jo draws the important principles surrounding prophecy out of the chapter of Acts 19. Using inspiration from the prophetic revelations in her own life, Jo reveals that we can trust scripture: God delights to speak to us. We hear his voice, and know him. Prophecy is to console the Church, and to lift up […]

Acts 18 – Arrive Delay Depart

by

This week, Sarah explores the fascinating events of Acts 18. Paul and his team faced exciting new arrivals, frustrating delays and hard farewells, and the challenge for us is this: what do we bring with us, how do we cope with unexpected delays, and what do we leave behind us?
