Most of us like to be liked. We may not need to be the center of attention or the life of the party but we want people to like us. We fear being ostracized. We live in a day where people are easily cancelled. We fear being cancelled by friends…cancelled by culture. It drains us of courage. The gospel, even when presented well is offensive. The concept of being born again let’s us know that everything about us is wrong and we needs a rebirth…a ‘do over’. In a day of increasing hostility to the gospel, it’s hard to be courageous.
Join us Sunday as we take a look at the Apostle Paul’s courage when after being severely beaten, he still addresses the crowd. Where does the strength from his courage originate?
