Day 1 Count for God

Count for God How do we make our lives count for God? There’s no one line answer, but if the book of Acts is anything to go on, we have to be willing to face a baptism of fire. Paul and Barnabas head off to Cyprus on the first leg of what we now call

Day 3 No Mixing

No Mixing He told them this parable: “No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wine-skins. If he

Day 9 Ministry

Ministry Pentecostal churches too easily fall into the trap of calling ministry “spiritual” and elevating it if it involves a speaking ministry, and relegating anything else as “natural” and less important, if it doesn’t.
